Pictures: More Cactus Blooms and this one is a evil cactus! If you walk around the desert enough you’re going to get stuck now and again and this cactus is the ones that gets me the most. I sometimes think these things jump!! They are fun too, they have little hooks on each little thorn that goes in easy and come out hard. They have small section that break off and fall on the ground and if you step on it it will stick to the shoes and the next step it will get a hold a little higher on the other shoe/leg. I tell you, this one is evil! LOL. But … the blooms this time of year are nice 🙂
Here is the plant itself, a sticky fellow for sure. The second one below show all the sticky things looking for a ride with anything that touches them! Forgive the quality, I took these two shot at high-noon today and the light is harsh.
On this post Long Horn Sheep I kept calling these guys Long Horn Sheep ….. How about I call them Big Horn Sheep 🙂 there, that is better! Sometimes I know better and just don’t do better 😦
