Beauty and the Beast

thorny locust thorn and leaf

Impressive

The tender leaf, the fearsome thorn, on the same branch, sprouting from the same spot.

Once more, the thorny locust, this time a sapling, in spring. For perspective, the thorns are about 2.5″ long. In spring they are softer and will bend a bit, not until winter do they develop their full strength, but if pressed straight on from the point they will do some damage. I did not test them.

Note the faint spiderweb above, and how tiny the spider must be to have spun that silk.
