Hi All...

I'm a very infrequent poster, but very much enjoy learning a lot from everyone's photography.

Here's an Organ Pipe Cactus flower that was just too good to pass up. It typically blooms during the night, and this one measures about 7 inches in diameter. It was taken early in the morning before the bloom either closes up or dies.







Thanks
Tom

Thanks again to everyone for commenting (Kevin, Morris, kmunroe, mco_970, RC, dorian, David and Jim).

Although the bloom on this cactus would not have lasted too long given its short blooming span, I have to report that it became a quick appetizer for a family of javelinas that passed through my front yard last night. Very few things go to waste on the desert!

Thanks
Tom

Wonderful shot, Tom! I'm glad you were able to capture it before it became dessert.
