Beautiful!
There were several of what we called "Queen of the Night" cacti in my mother's garden, some decades old. We would watch in awe when the blossoms unfolded.

I love the way you get such great exposure which gives you such detail in these night shots! It's so easy to blow out all the highlights. I wouldn't normally use the word, "impeccable," relative to photography, but these are impeccable.

What lovely tones of colour in these blooms!

I agree with Lowell JM, not an easy shot and yet you always make it look so! I think your collection of flowering cacti must be quite fabulous!

There are always beautiful things to be found at night.

That's exquisite and original. Nobody shoots flowers in the dark. It gives the subject an alien feeling.
