No work today, so I can participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge again.  This week’s theme is “Prolific.”   In the desert, there are many plants that have a prolific number of spines, such as this cactus.  It’s beautiful, but don’t overbalance while admiring it!

It may not be a rose, but it’s certainly between two or more thorns!  I like the contrast between the sharp thorns and the soft flower.  Be careful if you attempt to pick this flower!!

Macro photography with a phone camera can be challenging, but it can also be rewarding.  Every second Monday of the month, anyone taking macro photos with a camera that’s not a traditional camera is welcome to join the Phoneography Challenge hosted by Sally at Lens and Pens by Sally.  There are challenges each week, beginning on Monday, so please feel free to drop by and participate or simply enjoy viewing all the photos.

My photo this week is from a cactus in the natural yard at my parents’ home in the Phoenix area.  Cactus spines are beautiful in macro photograpy but you don’t want to get up close and personal with them.
