You are so bad Victor! LOL I am in love with this photo. I so wish I could zoom there to see it in person. Such a perfect setting for such a perfect cactus.

I love the color.

Yes, it glows! Does it say where this was taken? I need to go back and look. Arizona probably. I would love to go on a cactus treasure hunt there.

Mexico.

LOL, Mexican Fire Barrel should have been a huge clue!

OK, lets go to Mexico for a hunt!

El Cajon, CA

I'd love to show you where it grows!
And not too far from that location the rare Gymnocactus/Turbinicarpus mandragora is growing.
