Opuntia hybrid

This interesting looking Opuntia is a common hybrid found around Fredonia, with one parent been Opuntia phaeacantha. The plants there vary widely in the size of the pads, and spines - from completely naked to very spiny. Some plants have purple pads and some completely green. From the bud it seems like that the flower color is pink.
