Flowers and Thorns

I've always had a fascination with how small things look when magnified, so the cacti around the house made for a perfect subject to try out the macro setting of the 70-300mm zoom. What really captured my attention in this shot was how the spines gown out of the cactus straight, with a
blunt tip. As they reach their final length, they bend into a hook and the tip shapens to become needle sharp. Canon 20D - 1/30th, 190mm @ f/29, ISO 100
