      I like this. Interesting to see these plants as I thought I'd seen about every type of cholla before, but not this variety that I can recall. Kind of reminded me of an octillo look. Thanks for sharing.

      Nice to see you uploading images.

      @Trail Images ...good question...I'll pursue that further.

      People around here call these Cholla..."walking stick cholla" ... they're in every yard in my neighborhood...they leave a long woody stick that's full of holes when they die...not very segmented...the fluffy-looking Ocatillo that's common in AZ is rare in NM . Very different desert in NM vs AZ: higher altitude, lots of rock, not much sand.

      Eric, thanks.. I figured this would be a good time to share the kinds of photos I make these days. I'm as interested in archery and outdoors and native people around here as I am in photo.

      Love the different textures in this image....and the sky is the icing on the cake ....nice composition too!
      Very different cholla compared to those we have growing here in northern NM

      Looking around my neighborhood, and even remote parts of my yard, I'm finding plenty of that "ocatillo" segmented stuff. It's easier to love the "walking stick" version of whatever it is than the segmented, awkward-looking version...which is hellish when accidentally bumped-into.
