Alpine Foxtails

I am terrible with plants, so forgive me if I've completely misidentified this flower.  I believe they are foxtails, and a Google search doesn't immediately disprove me, so I'm running with it. 

Over by the Matterhorn, there is some lovely landscape beside the queue filled with plants and wildflowers evocative of a Swiss countryside.  In the warm light of the afternoon, these become especially vibrant, and I feel like a close-up provides a nice, naturalistic composition.  Never mind the people in line or the lamppost on the left or the Matterhorn station in the background, I suppose.  But focus on the flowers and the lighting, close your eyes, and you can almost imagine being in Switzerland!

Foxtail flowers bloom near the Matterhorn at Disneyland.
