A Cholla flower for Cactus Monday

I have two kinds of Cholla in my yard- the chainfruit Cholla I've shown previously that has the pink flowers and this one that I have yet to identify. I love the yellow-orange flowers. Anyone able to ID it for me?


Happy Cactus Monday! To see other cactus themed art and photography please visit Teri's Painted Daisies!

I haven't got a clue what it's called, but it kind of reminds me of fresh salsa with a dollop of sour cream...

Gorgeous photos. I would say that is a buckhorn cholla because the filaments look red. Staghorn cholla blooms look similar except the filaments are yellowish green.

I was going to suggest Buckthorn, too, but Diane beat me to it -

And now I know to look at the filaments, thanks, Diane!

Thanks for your comments! I think it is a buckhorn cholla after looking at Julies link.
