I broke out my macro lens for a favorite subject of mine, desiccated cacti. I have been searching for these dried out remains on my local hikes for several years now. I discovered their beautiful textures a few years back when I stumbled across a prickly pear cactus patch that had been recently scorched by a local brush fire.
I just love the web-like fibrous patterns and the complexity behind it all. I’ve gained a new appreciation for cacti exploring these arid husks. Below are some of the highlights of my most recent cacti photos.
