Crooking Its Bright Red Finger

The desert is truly in bloom.  Usually we're not here this time of year so we rarely get to see all of the color.  
This is an Ocotillo plant.  It looks beautiful with these bright scarlet flowers, swaying in the wind like fingers waving for you to come get a closer look.
But don't let its beauty fool you.  Underneath those little green leaves that line their stems, and below those bright red tips, you will find this.

Probably best to look and not touch.
