Desert Rose - Yellow Cactus Flower

Cactus is an under-rated plant. It is in abundance here in the desert, and is a favorite for many essential pollinators. There are a variety of species of cacti, each with its own beautiful, colorful bloom. These yellow cholla in my front yard were just about to open.
