20 thoughts on “Feeling Very Prickly

  1. I love cactuses. There is just something about them that has always fascinated me. This reminds me of my first encounter with a lechuguilla plant. I was hiking in Lincoln National Forest when I brushed against one of these. The spines are so sharp I felt no pain as one penetrated right through my heavyweight hiking boot and into my ankle and another went into my calf. I didn’t realize I had been stuck until I felt the blood trickle down my calf and couldn’t figure out what happened until I saw the blood on the spines. I was dumbfounded anything natural could be so sharp!
