Desert paintbrush

Indian paintbrush, seen just west of Sedona, in desert terrain. I took this from our balloon gondola, near the end of our flight (4/3/08). There are so many kinds of Indian paintbrush, that I'm not sure which this is.

The bloom is beautiful, but the surrounding branches look rather thorny.
Great banner.

Exceptional banner & image, Elizabeth,
and dangling from a gondola to get it! Green Grin!
Well done! I tip my hat to you.

Is the paintbrush mixed in with Cat Claw?

Cal asked
"Is the paintbrush mixed in with Cat Claw? "

I'm not sufficiently knowledgeable about desert vegetation to answer precisely, but it was certainly mixed with something thorny.
