If cacti could think,
would they devise new methods
for inflicting harm?

  1. I hope the cacti would think how they could shave off their thorns.

  2. Nice one MMT. Wonderful photo too. Your haiku and photo are in balance and making such a nice painting or haiga.

  3. Their present method is too dangerous itself. Wouldn’t want it to come up with new ones. 😉 😀
    Nice take on this. 🙂

  4. Nice macro photo.

    Regards and best wishes

    ….. self-preservation maybe?

  6. Interesting thought! Would two of them make a Prickly Pair????


  7. LOL — they can inflict pain, without doubt!! 😀

  8. I think cacti can inflict enough harm as it is. I really like your photo.

  9. Love the Haiku! Those spines might be blurred in the background, but they’re still just as prickly!

  10. Nice capture of textures and tones.

  11. Awesome macro shot ~ Wonderful! ~ namaste, Carol ^_^ (A Creative Harbor)

  12. Great picture…love the splash of yellow, and funny text.

  13. Painful they can be but oh my they are pretty to see. Okay I know silly rhyme but your shot is very nice.

  14. Having been “caught” by jumping chollas on more than one occasion, I’m not at all sure but what they can’t think!!

  15. I don’t know but I have to see to it I don’t get close to them ^_^

  16. Wonderful details and bokeh.
