[This Honey Locust Tree is protecting itself well with an array of spiked thorns.   Honey Locust Tree thorns are thought to have evolved to protect the trees from browsing Pleistocene (i.e., Ice Age) mega-fauna.  The name derives from the sweet taste of the legume pulp, which was used for food by Native American people, and can also be fermented to make beer.]
