The LA Times has an article about crime in Tijuana, and I don’t know anything about that, but for some reason the article is illustrated with this lovely photo.

That looks like a very old Echinopsis terschecki. The vulture is trying to scare away the photographer since the photographer, who we shall call Bill, is standing right on top of the mouse hole where the vulture was feeding from just a few moments ago. Harsh.
