Desert Fishhook

This shot was taken near Bumble Bee, AZ, located on the very north end of the Sonoran Desert. It's a fishhook cactus and gets its name from the way its spine curl at the end to resemble a fishhook. Although this one is very small (maybe about 4-5 inches tall) they can grow to be very large. Click here to see a photo of this guys bigger brother.
