Spine of Barrel Cactus

This photo was taken as a close-up looking down at a large barrel cactus.  I like the texture and look of this photo.  Cacti have a central spine and a radial spine.  Cacti generally also have an areole, which produce spines and sometimes flowers.  The spines are arranged around the areole like the spokes of a wheel.  I will show you a close up of an areole tomorrow. Cacti are some of my favorite items, and I have many in my yard.  I love to photograph a variety of cactus so you will see many examples over time, from lithops or living stones to Saguaro and cholla.

There's something a little cranky about those spikes that makes me pine for soft green moss. Thanks for keeping an eye on my blog.

Beautiful close-up!

Marc said...

This is really a natural work of art. And cactuses are great.

Well Im Natasha I am new to this forum and I am 67 years old.

I have one hobby and thats books. Because I like reading so much my grandson gave me a kindle from amazon. This machine made my hobby significantly easier since I dont have got to move hefty books like one of my favourites "Cicle of Bones".

Whenever I finish reading I uhh just go to [url=http://www.1kindlebook.com/Ebooks_Kindle-eBooks.html]www.1kindlebook.com[/url] to obtain one more. The most excellent thing is that I can simply re-read the books. My own little library :).

I want to know about your hobbies.
