Hello, Victor -
Wonderful nature shot - this almost looks like a painting with magnificent textures, light and color. Great composition with the leaves radiating out from the bottom center. Wonderful interplay of light and shadow. Great work.

Orale Victor, interesante tu maguey. Te falto comentar a nuestros amigos de fuera de Mexico que la diosa de la planta del maguey se llamaba Mayahuel, la del cerco de manitas, y que en los códices aparace como diosa nutricia amamantado al niño pequeño en su icpalli en forma de tortuga. Un saludo vic, felicidades por esta imagen de la planta. Por cierto, sabias que ya enlatan el pulque y creo que hasta lo exportan, aqui en Hidalgo? Un saludo :)
