Birds fly. Dogs bark. Fire burns. I read. (Mostly mysteries.)
oh my heavens, those are quite creepy looking. ;-)
Scary - they look like snakes with thorns.
Love this photo; very different!
They really do look like caterpillars! Great shot.
Very odd cactus plants. What are they called?
Wow, those do look like caterpillars. I wouldn't want to walk near that!
A green can of worms, hehe.
Those are the most unusual cacti I've ever seen!
Ooooh -this looks a little too much like snakes for my comfort zone. It's cool, but creepy!
I've never seen cactus crawling around like that before.
Caite-- They certainly give a horror movie sense of movement, don't they?Kaye-- Perhaps that's why critters feel so safe amongst them... they know humans think of snakes and will stay away! LOLDiane-- They're one of my favorite plants at the Garden.Beth-- Caterpillars? They do! Never thought of that; probably because I'm stuck on what I thought when I first saw them.Barbara-- The common name is "octopus cactus" and I always hear Ringo singing "In an octopus's garden" when I see them. :)Kathy-- They aren't the type of cactus that reacts to body heat, so as long as you don't fall in, you'd be okay.Dorte-- Another good description!Dawn-- Cacti are so much fun. I ought to post a bunch of photos of them I've taken at the Garden.SuziQ-- I think "octopus" when I see them, and I think octopi are a bit creepy.Leslie-- I hadn't either. Now I think of them as buddies. LOL
