  Cactaceae Opuntia chlorotica, Hackberry Complex Fire, Mojave National Preserve, San Bernardino County, California
Photograph taken October 15, 2005.

This is one of the few cacti that were resprouting. Many others were not. Perhaps it has to do with the amount of damage to the base of the plant from the heat.
