Standing Guard

I became obsessed with the Century Plant, an agave that started to look like people out in the distance to me after a while. Sometimes they were in clusters, sometimes flying solo. They had just bloomed this sprint so they had these antennae like branches sticking out of the top. The seedpods and flowers that once adorned these naked branches could weigh up to 70lbs.
