Strawberry Hedgehog Cactus
These strawberry hedgehog cacti are showing some flower buds in Joshua Tree National Park. You can see the distinctive spine coloration which is light grey at the top and reddish/pinkish-brown towards the base, which can be a helpful in identifying which member of the Echinocereus genus you have. The spines are also flattened, and somewhat "sword-like".
