We were just strolling along, enjoying the scenery, minding our own business. Suddenly I spied a monster… eek! what is this?!!
As I crept close to it with my phone, I felt a tad uneasy. I was pretty sure it was simply a cactus buy oh. my. word. it looked like a tarantula that got stuck going in … .
I posted this shot on Instagram and I got mixed reactions. Some people were pretty dismayed, but others were suitably impressed.
One poor lady wanted desperately to “un-see” it … I kept watching my followers to see if anyone would abandon me, but so far, that hasn’t happened.
There was a lot of discussion as to what type of cactus it is, but so far, no conclusions.
I have a good lead on one idea, but not everyone agrees.
… aacckk … keep back …
Is nature not incredible!!? It almost seems like this plant is trying to look fearsome to keep predators away.
Anyone have any ideas?
