POTD: Sawtooth Yucca

Sawtooth Yucca
Cochise Stronghold, Arizona
2020

I stopped to photograph this yucca because of the way the shadows emphasized the namesake teeth but I was subsequently almost as intrigued by the (nearly) regularly spaced holes along the leaf edges. Clearly there is something about those leaf edges and perhaps the “roots” of the teeth themselves that attracts a certain kind of bug.
