Octoman Cactus ~

The icon of the Southwest, the saguaro cactus, is breathtaking in its size and diversity. Here is one that has sprouted 8 branches (or arms) and also developed a crested top. Octoman! (And now I can't get the tune of Macho Man out of my head!)

  2. Is that the one who lives at Tohono Chul Park. I know that face anywhere! LOL!

  3. I sure didn't know that a Saguaro could be both at the same time. I thought it was either/or.
