It took me awhile to find this one! Look at those needles or spines! This has to be the Grizzly Bear Cactus, but I suppose Sp-member Anya Jingle might have the final word. Thanks for posting!

This can only be a Claret Cup (Echinocereus triglochidiatus). The crimson red flowers are unmistakable. One of my favorite cacti. The flowers stay open both day and night. Great photo Tanya!

The flowers look to me like they're almost ORANGE. Maybe I've been drinking too much eggnog! Thanks, Tanya! : > )
