Cholla Cactus

Cholla Cactus (Opuntia bigelovii)
Location:  Saguaro National Park, Arizona, USA

This Cholla Cactus (Opuntia bigelovii) is sometimes called the Teddy Bear Cholla, because its dense spines make it look rather fuzzy, especially from a distance.  This cactus is native to the Sonoran Desert.

Thanks, Kathy. The position of the sun was in my favor for this shot.
