Great capture of the intriguing details of this spines guarding the buds. May we hope you'll share the full shot, and perhaps a shot of the actual blooms? Thumbs up

Really cool! Wonderful banner. It kind of looks like cat noses poking through white feathers. Smiling It intrigued me and brought me in. I tip my hat to you.

Cool banner!
Laziness is a virtue. If I never ask for your help, don’t be offended when I don’t take your advice either.

Amazing pictures! This looks like something you'd see on a coral reef, under the sea.

Excellent banner and photos, Baja! Thumbs up Your close-ups of the cactus reveal the cool intricacies of the plant! Are the spines soft or sharp?
