    Yer, tring to ID that main plant or the vine climbimg it?

    If it is the main plant are those hairs or spines on the branches? Just pointy or did they sting like Stinging nettle?
    Habitat? are those pine needles on the ground around it?

    I said it grabbed my attention, and it sure did. I was walking past it and I hardly even noticed it until my leg brushed up against it. I felt a sting on my leg. I turned around expecting to see some insect, but all that was there was this plant. I bent down and looked at it. I noticed the spines stinking out of the stems. I touched a leaf to get a better look and as soon as I touched it I felt another sting on my fingers. I have built up thick skin on my fingers, from my job. I didn't think it would be able to sting through the skin, but I was wrong. After i took these pics and walked away I realized that my leg and fingers were really burning.

    Best guess would be Cnidoscolus stimulosus or Spurge-nettle/Tread Softly/Finger Rot.
