Staghorn Cholla Cactus

This cactus straddles the corner of our property and our neighbour's. I'm not absolutely sure what kind of cholla it is, but I'm guessing it's a staghorn cholla. Other possibilities are buckhorn and cane cholla. I delight in its yellow flowers and the interesting structure of its fruit.
