Cactus Flower
2 Attachment(s)
I really like the flower images I see on this forum but I've not done very many. Here is a couple of FZ40 shots of a flowering cactus we found when out hiking behind our property. They are rare in the high cold desert but we always try to discover them especially when they are ready to bloom. Gotta love nature.

Fine detail of a very unusual flower. I see that the bee is enjoying them too!

Nice shots. I'm a new owner of Panasonic TZ7 ( ZS3), this is the first time to post Photos. Wanted to share with you couple of shots of a flowering cactus too.
All comments are welcome.

Very nice, NileLily! You should start your own thread, these shots deserve to be on their own! I love the way the two bees are digging in with all their might!

Hi NileLilty! Nice shots. Agree with Saly, start a thread and post more of your shots. Looking forward to more.

Nice shot of the cacti and detail of the flower, midnightman

Are the cactus individual plants, or offshoots (suckers)?

@ NileLily nice shots of the bees, great panorama of the cacti
