This rare crested saguaro resides in the eastern section of Arizona’s Saguaro National Park. It’s one of the tallest crested saguaros I have found, which made it quite difficult to photograph. But if you look closely, there’s a little crested crown at the very top. Its arms on each side reminded me of wings and the perspective of the clouds above made it as if the saguaro was flying away. What a great find in a great place!
