About 5 days ago, I noticed a bloom forming on one of my cacti. I'm not sure what kind of cactus it is, but I think it's a Cereus sp. So I was on high alert to capture the bloom when it opened...
I noticed yesterday afternoon that it was looking particularly full.
I checked on it after the sun set and again at 11 pm or so. This morning I saw it was at least partially open, so I thought, "Oh hey, maybe it's a cactus that blooms during the day. I better start taking pictures now."
The bees were going absolutely bananas over the bloom as was I.
But it seems it was a night blooming cactus after all. About an hour it was closed.
I hope the bees got their fill, and I'm very grateful to have started photographing as soon as I saw it this morning. Thank goodness I wake up early! Phew!
