So many Opuntia look the same that identification is hard. Location, a better picture and flowers help

It could be a Burbank Spineless O. ficus-indica, or it could be something else. As Mike says, it's hard to tell, need more than this picture.

Upon viewing the close-ups, I'm going to guess that it's Opuntia stricta

Confirmed by Opuntia Web as being an O. stricta.
