I too love close-ups of agave. I especially like the imprints left by the leaves before they unfurled outward!

Hello Monica. Agaves are extraordinary and subtle and wonderful and interesting - close up; and dead boring from even a short distance.

It looks velvet soft and sticky at the same time and in detail even more exotic to me than it already is. Well, I can't try it out because we don't have them here. Tequilla is made of some species of agave (wikipedia), new to me.

These are beautiful close-ups Lucy. I feel like I should be able to reach forward and feel the textures.

Hello Janice

I was rather pleased with these photos of the agave, Janice. I wish all my photos would turn out so well!

Hello Hildegarde - these agaves are neither velvety nor sticky - more leathery, I suppose. They look stiff and uninteresting from a distance and one can easily pass by without paying them attention. But, when you do, when you go up close - they are extraordinarily full of pattern and delicate colour.
