The Proverbial Double Edged Sword!


"Beware of the Cactus Blossom!"  © Paula Scott Molokai Girl Studio


The delicate shadows on the delicate petals belie the characteristics of the rest of this cactus! Such duality at play here with the cactus plant offering the soft petals of the flower with such deadly thorns nestled around it. Certainly a 'look, but don't touch' kind of thing!

Definitely a double-edged sword. I'm not going anywhere near it-my camera's lens was close enough, thank you very much!

Come join us every week, as a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!
