Death by natural causes? This opuntia (?) looks in fine shape, unlike a lot of 'em that wizened away and died due to Arizona's drought. Sorry if I missed your meaning.

Technicals: The WB seems a bit on the blue side. Composition is not bad, although I'm really having trouble with the subject being so small and unidentifiable.
Feel: As mentioned above, I'm not catching the idea of death because whatever is dead, that thing on top, is so small. I'm not even sure what it is and if I didn't know this was a "death" challenge wouldn't be thinking death at all.
Score: 3

This cactus looks alive and well to me... :-)

Hmmm, that cactus looks very alive to me! But I still think it is a well-taken photo with interesting perspective and good background. 7.
