Blossfeldia should count as a little cactus. Bud and then seedpod. I don't have a photo of the flower.

Beautiful little plants everyone thank you. I had trouble picking my favourite whilst, I really liked chris l's selection and sheila's escobaria, I have actually picked Mike T's detailed Blossfeldia picture as it was the photograph I liked the most.
