Mother-in-Law’s Cushion

This Cactus, Echinocactus grusonii, has a lot of names: Golden Ball, Golden Barrel Cactus and Mother-in-Law’s Cushion. In Norwegian it is called “Gullkulekaktus”.
This close-up will be my contribution to: “Black and White Wednesdays” – “The Weekend In B&W”

  20. Very nice. I like it.

  21. Så stilig bilde! Eg får assosiasjonar til piggtråd og stengsel. Kaktusar veit å forsvare seg…

  22. Symmetry in alignment… or in a funny note : “ouch” … be careful at the long spins!!! 🙂 Have a sunny summer day!

    Har nett gifta “bort” son min, etter mange års sambuarskap”, heldigvis omtalar vi kvarandre vàrt og mildt, mi svigerdatter og meg*ler*

  30. Fint mønster – men ikke godt at sidde på….. (selvom det kan være godt at sætte sig på svigermor før hun sætter sig på dig 😉 )

  31. Hello, I discover your beautiful blog
    A nice idea with this result catus and very graphic, I love
