    I love the way this photo has the look of one taken through an electron microscope, as the scale isn't obvious. Slight lack of focus on the left but a great result overall. They look like they are designed to snap off and stay in their victims! GL.

    Thanks for the kind words.
It is a cactus. I took a lot of shots in some botanic gardens, this was the best for an interesting pattern, texture and lighting.
sorry, i don't have a clear shot which shows the size. Not one to get too close to, either way.

    Absolutely wonderful detail, brought out beautifully in B&W. Great repetition

    Cactus? Composition might be improved if one of these somehow stood out from the rest to provide a visual focal point (as it were).

    A patterned photograph and beautifully captured. Patterns can come across as boring and mundane but the spikes and slight changes in position adds interest!
