Love the contrast between the sharp and prickly base of this cactus and the soft and fluffy top!  This is called “Old Man of the Andes” cactus (that describes how I feel sometimes) lol

    OMG Tammy I am so sorry for you! You got too close when getting that Macro and your Hair Piece got all tangled in the spines.Did you retrieve it? and if so, when will the puncture wounds heal?

    Oh my, such a weird cactus! Looks like a sheep scratched its back on it! Loving the colors and the different textures!

    PS : Danudin has such a way with comments! 🙂

    Wonder how long it takes for this cactus to grow that “beard”? Perfect image for this theme!!!!

  9. Steven Says:

    Looks like sheep’s hair. I don’t think I have ever seen this before (certainly not in real life) so thanks for the education!

    Pictures load top to bottom on my ancient computer…so at first I thought this was a horse’s tail. Imagine my surprise to see a cactus revealed! Contrast is certainly applicable here.

    That fluffy hair contrast well with the cactus spines. What a shot!

  12. I love that cactus. It almost looks like it has hair. Great contrast in textures.

    Hi Tammy,
    Awesome picture for the theme! That “furry” stuff actually looks like hair. It’s a very pretty cactus. Have a great day!

    Nice shot Tammy. Thought this might have been furry though 😉

    Almost had me reaching for a brush! What an unusual looking plant.

  17. Mike Says:

    That’s an interesting specimen and a great take on the theme.

    Nice macro shot!! Have you moved and are now living in the desert!!

  19. Great photo of a cactus type I’ve never seen! Forgive me if I decline to test it’s cuddliness!

  20. Lisa Says:

    Never seen one of these, it looked like it was going to be animal as I scrolled down.

    Interesting take on the theme! Kind of looks like the cactus is wearing a wig! Love it!
