So originally when I saw this I thought it looked like a small fuzzy Beavertail Cactus. I thought that was just a funny phrase.
In actuality it’s an Old Man Cactus, I think, and that name is not as funny. I’m trying to learn all the vegetation out here, at least a little, and it’s going to take a while.
Also everything I thought was Beavertail Cactus is a member of the Pricklypear Cactus family. More to learn.
