Ferocactus cylindraceus

Ferocactus cylindraceus is another widely spread cactus of US South-West. It is a large growing plant, the largest plants as tall as 6ft. They start blooming at a size of soccer ball or larger, at age of couple decades.
The picture is taken at Anza Borego State park of California.The young plants from there often have very long twisted spines, that gives them very nice and unusual look.
The red subjects in the picture are fallen ocotillo - Fouquieria flowers.
