Cactus flowers

Some are blooming in the desert nearby. Cactus flowers mostly close up at night and open gradually after sunrise, reaching their peak at midday when the light is ghastly. A diffuser is handy. Backgrounds are usually messy so I use as shallow a depth of field as I can get away with.

This cholla flower was just beginning to open.

Thanks for looking. Criticism is always welcome.
