Spikes

Spikes

I took this photograph while hiking in and around Mesa, Arizona. The cactus is full of spikes and prickly thorns. Although it is full of spikes, there is beauty in this nature too.

According to Wikipedia, “In plant morphology, thorns, spines, and prickles, and in general spinose structures, are hard, rigid extensions or modifications of leaves, roots, stems or buds with sharp, stiff ends, and generally serve the same function: physically deterring animals from eating the plant material.”

This cactus is quite old and has become home to many birds as evidenced by all the holes in it. The dramatic streaks in the sky are beautiful too. This was taken in the deserts near Mesa, Arizona, USA.

According to Wikipedia, “The saguaro is a tree-like cactus species in the monotypic genus Carnegiea, which can grow to be over 40 feet tall…The saguaro blossom is the state wildflower of Arizona.”

Here are some wonderful cacti that have little baby cacti growing around and through the cactus.

Wikipedia indicates “Botanically, “spines” are distinguished from “thorns”: spines are modified leaves, and thorns are modified branches. Cacti produce spines…”
