Thorns?!! I thought that they were soft, fuzzy little feathery attachments~so what do I know about Arizona and cacti? Apparently not much!!

That's very creative, too. Lots of creative stuff on the CDP blogs this morning. Is this the cactus where the thorns stick and get bigger under your skin? I can never remember.

This is a clever image, Sharon. You are right. The backlighting really shows off the thorns.
