Desert barrel cactus flowers. Close-up of desert barrel cactus flowers (Ferocactus acanthodes), showing their stamens (male reproductive parts) and carpels (female reproductive parts, centre). The desert barrel cactus inhabits arid regions of Mexico and south-western USA. Its spines are modified leaf structures whose small surface area reduces water loss by evaporation.
