...with four new lobes growing.
Most locals scoff when I tell them that there is prickly pear in New York.
The Southern exposure of the peaks of the Hudson Highlands is very conducive to these little cacti, and on this particular ridge, their sporadic growth was limited to an area less than 100X100 ft.
To complete the whole desert feel, 5 lined skinks race about the rocks. No shots of them today, they are simply too skittish and too fast.

    Nice shot! That looks like Opuntia humifusa, native of the USA, east of the rockies. Those are four nice buds on that stem, and should make a stunning yellow flowering photo soon! :-)
