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

Cool banner Baja!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

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?
