    Lovely and unusual photo. I like that you made it black and white, too, so we can focus on the interesting patterns of the cactus.

      Its like modern art right. There’s a joke an artist always signs the painting so people know which way to see it right 😀

    Great capture.. Loved it that you’ve highlighted it in black n white!

      Black and white has a charm of its own

  10. Hannah says:

    Very formidable, what protection. It’s curious that the spines don’t have barbs or texture. They really wrap around to cover the cactus. Thanks for thinking of photographing them.

    Cactus needles sting and hook, thorns scratch or cut.
