So cool! Did you get any other shots of it?

Very cool! I'm going to take a guess and say it's a Euphorbia, though it's such a large family,that doesn't narrow it down too much. I have a friend at work who might know this, but I won't be back at home/work for another 7 weeks or more. I will try to remember it if no one can ID it by then.
