A cactus flower from my garden.. they appear, maybe five or six , once a year …most open same day, so the bud here is strange, it opened one day later…
I love them.. maybe coz they live one night only.. I feel their ephemeral life makes them special..
I can watch other flowers.. just a glance, coz I know I will see them again the next day, and coming ones.. and there will be more of them ready to blossom when the others die.. but when I watch this cactus flower, I try to fill my soul all of a sudden.. I try to intoxicate myself with its beauty… coz I know it will be brief.. and intense.. and this feeling will have to last a whole year.. until it will blossom again…

Wow, Sil. Truly beautiful - I think even more as you said because of their short life - stunning shot with incredible detail and color!

an experience which make us live every moment with intensity and strong heart. In the same time delicate and strong this flower (like you.. i imagine).

so wonderful...so delicate and so well caught, with the perfect light. A so superb photo immortalizes it, thus we can contemplate it while awaiting the next one. The only perfume will miss us.. I love the fragile texture and the delicacy of the petals. This is a photo of the soul.
