Opuntia microdasys albata - ear cactus
These opuntia, also known as prickly pear cacti , form particularly colored bundles of spines.
This gives them a fun look, they are also called teddy bear cacti. But be careful: every little point consists of a lot of very small spines that loosen very quickly. They hardly hurt, but getting them out of your skin is a nice sideline ...
