Some closer-ups of yesterday’s Opuntias. Plus a bonus flowering cholla, also theoretically an Opuntia, but not exactly.
Used to be an Opuntia, now considered a Tacinga, though still in the Opuntiodeae tribe.
Close up of a different Beavertail Cactus!
Bonus cholla… Used to be an Opuntia, now a Cylindropuntia.
Any guesses as to the species of them all? I gave good hints.
