A variety of cholla cactus, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona

Whetted by the sun,
the cholla’s deadly daggers
keep all foes at bay.

  1. the branches certainly look likes daggers. 🙂

  2. i’m thinking of spadoman and how cleverly he would use this as an opportunity to sing the salutation of peace. i miss him so.

  3. Amazing sky and dramatic looking tree ~ great shot and wonderful photo ^_^

    A ShutterBug Explores ~ aka (A Creative Harbor)

  4. I’ve had a few of these jump at me. It’s a beauty but keep your distance.

  5. A teacher this tree… of how to move quickly when it seems it is not moving at all…

  6. Simple, clean image. Very nicely captured. Have a blessed week-end.

  7. Wonderful landscape but I’ll stay clear of the daggers.

  8. It looks like an ominous cactus plant, but I am sure it has its purpose.

  9. whetted…rarely wet. Great shot!
