Fabulous, cactus flowers do not linger long so it is lovely to capture photos of them.

Gorgeous bloom. The color is so pretty.
My cactus in the backyard has three buds on it right now and I've been waiting all week for them to open up but, still nothing. I'm starting to worry about them.

I had no idea cactus could have such beautiful flowers! Is this from your photo collection, or do you have a cactus collection? A Renaissance man for sure!

Aw, jeez! I was going to post a picture of a blooming cactus I found here in the Ocala "wilds," but your picture makes mine look like it was taken by The Three Stooges!

This is splendiforous!

Everything said above and more JM. The leaves look so fragile, how can something so beautifully delicate come from something so spiky!!
