very cool shots. I remember as a kid always being fascinated by the soft fuzzy looking cacti that my grandmother had on her window sill. I found out the hard way soft and fuzzy they aren't...lol

There are so many details in the cacti and your macros capture them perfectly. For some reason the next to last photo reminds me of a snowflake, I love it.

I have different cactus plants in my living room, you should have known it by now. You are an inspiration that's why I got into plants.
