Seven Day Nature Challenge, Day 4…sharply beautiful

Sometimes the beautiful things you see in nature hide something not so nice.  In the summer, this branch will be filled with leaves.  But hidden among the leaves are the sharp thorns, easily seen in winter and still visible in this shot, guaranteed to snag your clothing or skin if you get too close.

Time for another nomination.  Karen, at bythebriny in glorious British Columbia, Canada, takes spectacular nature photos.  Karen, if you’re up for it, I’d love to have you participate in the challenge (as it’s what you do anyway.)  Be sure to check out her blog and photos.  You’ll be glad you did.

    I love the look of new growth on a plant. It’s the best of seeing the structure of the plant combined with the addition of colour before the whole plant gets filled in 🙂
    … and those thorns look intimidating!

    Those thorns look quite wicked but it is a lovely plant despite the thorns.
