Default Christmas Cactus

is blooming a little early but I'll take it. Adds some nice colour to our early rather grey winter weather.

That's a fact!

The first one is my favorite for the colors and more flower. Plus it's plain to see that it IS a Christmas Cactus flower.

I wonder if there's a worm on the petal? It sort of looks like one, but not.

No. 2 is my favorite - good sense of design there. Nice work.

Lovely series. Not the easiest flower to photograph.

You have truly captured the elegance of this flower. I much prefer the two shots on black which really bring out the brilliant color and detail of the flower.
