Cactus Bloom at Sunset

I love cactus blooms.  I love the combination of a delicate soft flower growing amid the inhospitable prickly thorns.  We have a cactus in our yard similar to this and the blooms only lasted one day.

Beautiful contrast.. soft and prickly.. light and dark.

Isn't it amazing how something so soft and delicate grows from a thorny cactus.
Wonderful capture, Karen.

I just love seeing light filtering through flower petals. This is really hard to capture and make it look just as it appears to the naked eye. Perfect job!
