Cactus Flower – February 27, 2013

Inside the Flower

Inside the Flower 2

I’ve been sick for about 1 week, so I’m making up for some of the images I was not able to post in a timely manner.

So cactus get these incredible flowers on them, usually in late  March. They bloom, and close and die in a span of several hours to 1 day. They are incredible beautiful.  They attract insects, and can smell really good, or really bad. Some use fly’s to pollinate, and they will smell like dead or rotting meat, or worse. Again visiting 2005, which means the Olympus C750UZ, ISO-50, F3.2, 1/80 sec,  6mm focal length, in Macro mode.
