Cactus as Pattern and Danger

This is one cactus plant among a cluster of them, seen at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. I went to the Garden twice to photograph the glass art of Dale Chihuly, but each time, the plants caught my eye as well.

Even a point and shoot camera may work to create striking close-up or macro images of cactus in detail.  This tiny plant measures about 1 1/2" across.  To see more information about it or a very large view, use this url http://www.flickr.com/photos/cobalt/315517507/

Three plant macros are a bit abstract yet show the detail that is ready for the interested eye.
