Photographer's Note

... and you need a hug, hug yourself! Especially if you have a prickly personality. The twining of the arms of this saguaro fascinated me. When seen from a bit further to my left, they appeared as a continuous circle pierced by the saguaro's trunk.

According to scientists, the arms are used to store water and the first one normally appears when they're about 10 feet tall. The better the water supply, the more arms thay will grow. However, not all of them grow arms.

ISO 100, f/18 @ 1/80th second, 62mm focal length
