Blooming Cactus, Pineapples on Top

I made a quick weekend trip to Phoenix and Tucson Arizona this weekend to meet with some alumni from the BYU ECE Department. I was eager to take some pictures of the Arizona desert and plant life in the spring. I did not get far from civilization but I did find this barrel cactus growing on the grounds of my hotel in Tucson. The bright yellow fruits/flowers are just budding from the top. When I showed this picture to Kellie, she thought they looked like little pineapples.
