Happy Cactus Monday!This week I experimented with "catching" shadows of plants on paper. It was fun to see how tilting the paper would change the shape of the shadow and it was challenging to keep myself and the camera out of the picture.
I cropped some of the pictures later:
But for most of these I left at least part of the plant in the picture with its shadow.
The next two cacti are both referred to as "jumping" cholla cactus. It is easy to tell the fuzzy Teddy bear apart from the chainfruit cholla just by the shadows.
This old cholla cactus skeleton looks like a dragon to me:
For a switch, here's the shadow of the paper on the cactus pad:
Naturally, after doing these experiments I kept noticing shadows everywhere. I posted more shadows that I found on my other blog, Desert Colors, if you'd like to take a peek.
To see other Cactus Monday posts, mosey on over the Teri's Painted Daisies. Have a great week. :)
