Obviously, not a tree you would want to lean against.

I'm not familiar with this tree. The trunk is thorny.

My goodness that is a strange trunked tree. I am going to have to look it up and learn something. MB

I love the angle of the tree. It reminds me of the Kauri pine in NZ.

Wow! And ouch! Those thorns would keep most animals out of that tree. Very impressive.

Beautiful sky and perfect perspective. Above all, I love bunch of tiny spikes emerging from the bark!

Can you use the spikes to climb?..:~))

Já tentei uma vez fotografar essa árvore (junto à estufa fria se não me engano)... Mas nem por sombras consegui uma foto tão boa!
Parabéns!
