beautiful colours and saturation, Cezar.
It's a Claret's cup hedgehog cactus (Echinocereus triglochidatus). I have myself an earlier post of this specie with a flower full open see here

Regards, Petru

Yes, it's a Claret's Cup Hedgehog Cactus.

Very nice clear macro. I especially like how sharp and strong the thorns look. Well done.

I recently uploaded a photo here at TrekNature.
