Great shot! The foreground plants look like the introduced pest( the Prickly Pear) that we have in Australia.

They are called "OCOTILLOS". The picture was taken in July and the temperature was 113 deg F.

Prickly Pears or Beavertail Cacti are native to the Sonoran Desert. Mexican cows eat them with delight while shaking their behinds and singing "La cucaracha" ... lol !
