Today's Photo - Rose Thorns!

I was attempting to get some good Macro Shots of our Rose Blooms, however the breeze was just a little too much today to get the sharp focus I wanted.  So I focused on the thicker branches near the base where things were a little more stable.

Many types of plants including the rose bush have these thorns as part of an evolutionary defense mechanism against predators!  This is the reason I tend to come out of the woods all bloody after our bushwhacking adventures!
