On several trips to Tucson, I've seen barrel cacti there that have orange flowers. All of them that I've seen near Phoenix have yellow flowers. I've wanted to get some pictures of the orange flowers for a few years, but I've always been driving by them when they're in the median of a busy road. It's hard to get good pictures under those circumstances. I saw some on my drive today. Since I was on a lightly traveled dirt road, I just pulled to the side of the road, got out, and took some pictures. Finally.
I also got a picture of an Arizona style grasshopper. Lindsey says they are dirt-hoppers because there isn't any grass. They do look like dirt.
