Saguaro Skeleton Cross Section 20071215

(Carnegiea gigantea)

During a hike in the desert, I found the remains of what looks like a saguaro cactus cut down a long time ago.
This is now a protected species, but it was interesting to see the inside structure like this.

Photographed in the Sonoran Desert west of Tucson, Arizona USA.

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS
1/60s f/8.0 at 33.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto
