The Old Cactus Garden at Balboa Park

There is an old cactus garden at Balboa Park in San Diego. It looks out over the Cabrillo Bridge and is edged by buildings built for the 1915 Exposition. The plants have unexpected shapes and almost seem to be plotting secret missions for the hours when everyone leaves for the day. This one caught my eye because with its red fruit, it looked as though it was a cluster of many unusual animals that just might begin to walk on down the path.
