Gabi, many thanks!! I came across these plants being partially shaded by a Desert Willow. These cacti are usually found out in the blazing sun so in this photo I had the benefit of much deeper shade to work with than I would normally find :)) Best wishes, Michael

Sure are: - some of those prickly critters have the most gorgeous adornment; a case of "look but don't touch", at least if you're not an insect anyway!

A nice sharp pic., (in more ways than one.) :^) ~ D.

Thanks David!! These plants can really cause a person who is not careful a nasty injury. One of the most dangerous we have come across was in the Big Bend region of Texas. A very low growing cactus just a flat pad on the ground about 6 inches in diameter with very sturdy spines growing straight up. Aptly named the 'Horse Crippler'. Best wishes for the weekend, Michael

Wow! (or gee-whizz, as they, (we) used to utter in the 'olden days') I must make a note in my busy appointment diary, - not to saddle-up around the Big Bend region of Texas! :o))
I'll wager that your First Nation's had fun with those 'Horse Cripplers', a time or two. :^)

As always, ...your a mine of information, Michael. Have a fantastic week ahead (and avoid those equestrian mine fields! ~ ;D

David, thanks! The horse crippler cactus will certainly ruin your day should you step on one of them. Happy to have passed along a tidbit of little known information. Another tidbit, the term First Nations did not catch on here, we refer to the indigenous peoples as Native Americans:)) Best regards, Michael
