Vibrant Pink Cactus Flower

This gorgeous pink cactus flower bloomed on one of my cactuses in the backyard. The middle of the flower looks like tiny dancers with glowing lights.

I was so excited and so grateful that I had been watching it so closely so I could photograph it. Sadly, it only bloomed for one hour and then started dying.

Today is Arizona Theme day and our theme is Desert in Bloom. Please check out the other Arizona Theme Day participants.  Tomorrow will be more nightscape photos.

Only one hour? Fortunately you were there to catch it.

Some times it is the music of life one has do dance to, even if just for an hour - capturing it with your photography enables it to continue to shine.
You surley have a special sense of sight!

Did you dance with them? :)
How long should we wait to see it blooms for an hour only?
