These are from the large flowering cactus at the end of our street.  The above photos were taken around 9:30 this morning.

And for the sake of seeing the difference in lighting – this one was taken around noon on Sunday:

I like it because you can see the spikes of the cactus… and the contrast between just how delicate these blossoms are… and the tough neighborhood that they live in!

  1. Coming from the Norteast, I’ve rarely seen a blooming cactus. I didn’t know they were so yellow (the only ones I’ve seen were fuscia or red) or so delicate.

    • Bobbie, I’m from the Northeast. So living here is such a wonder! There are so many colors that one would not expect or maybe its because we have to search harder for color. Last summer I must have taken about 200 cactus flower photos! I haven’t posted any of those yet… but will if I run out of new blooms…

  2. They look like tissue paper! It is cool that you captured the spikes too to give contrast to the beautiful blooms. I love flowers!

  3. Beautiful shots…I especially love the 3rd one down! The one you took in the morning just glows…very pretty!
