Shivers

A saguaro with wavy pleats stands next to two normal saguaros at sunrise on the Latigo Trail in McDowell Sonoran Preserve in Scottsdale, Arizona in February 2020

We’ve had a string of nights recently with temperatures near freezing, so since I get cold easily I wore one more layer than normal, stripping off layers as the morning advanced and the air warmed. I felt for this poor saguaro seemingly shivering in the cold as the sun rose, it probably didn’t help that its friends to the left and right didn’t seem to mind the winter weather. I don’t know what causes them to grow like this but I confess the oddballs are my favorites.
