Beehive or Rainbow cactus?

Neither is supposed to be growing at this elevation (both are over 4000’). Perhaps I need a cactus book. This is in dead kindling on the east side of the wash, in the area just north of Los Vientos.

I fail to mention the rabbits and squirrels generally, but they are always there, this morning as always. Also lots of Abert’s Towhees, and a possible Oriole flew over (but could also have been a Black-headed Grosbeak).
