I snapped this shot back in February of the Huntington Library's Desert Garden Conservatory (favorite place). This really is the best place to go to see a huge variety of cacti and succulents.
This cactus in particular (drawn below) spoke to me the most. I don't know why, and you'll probably call me crazy, but this cactus reminds me of an angry New Yorker throwing their hands up at someone who most likely cut them off in traffic. Do you get that vibe? No? Just me?
