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.

Cool banner Elizabeth!

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.
