[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This cactus is common in the Joshua Tree National Park. Thought it was rather an unusual species in that it branches much like any herbaceous scrub. Since this was taken in late Fall, the cacti stems had taken on a purple color.

It might have been better had the f stop been much lower (maybe f/11) to blur the background and set-off the subject.

Don't be too "prickly" with your critiques!! 8-)
