[Noty - Informator] Notatki Autora
Flowers of the Echinocactus grusonii (golden barrel cactus). The flies/bees feasting on pollen actually don't pollenate this cactus. It has seed pods located underneath the flowers in the white, fuzzy region.

Originating in Mexico, this popular cactus reaches up to 6 ft (1.8 m) in height and spread. It has a single, globe-shaped, pale green body that stretches upwards in maturity, becoming barrel-shaped. This stem is heavily ribbed with numerous areoles sprouting radial, yellow spines. In summer, larger cacti produce a circle of vivid, yellow flowers from a crown at the top of the plant.

Contrast adjusted.
