Agaves are a common sight in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata and a major feature in its landscapes. Normally we see them as small, spiky rosettes, or the mature specimens with fully developed stalks, with the new plants developing at the ends, ready to take root when the plant dies and the stalk collapses. These two photographed today behind Genoveses beach near San Jose, have just started sprouting out of their basal rosettes and have a weird, triffid-like, appearance.

Lovely shot Digby These plants have wicked points on their leaves but the sap of the plant is a great healer.
Lovely composition well placed to show its habitat with good colour and clarity.Nice capture.

We could say as well: "los gemelos del sur", very striking shot with lovely natural colors and sharpness. A special landscape that not many people know.
Have a good WE!
