Beautiful Red Cactus Flower

Here is the same cactus flower from yesterday with its deep red rose-like color.

The petals look like thin paper fluttering slightly in the breeze.

I like the look of this red cactus flower, but I also like the way it looked yesterday when I changed the shutter speed.

The cactus is Echinopsis Andagalensis
and is native to South America or it is called chamaecereus silvestrii from Argentina.

Check out photos from Australia and tomorrow is Sunday so we will have photos of Venice, Italy posted at Viva la Voyage, which is one of our favorite places to go.

Amazing, the difference in impression given by the two different treatments of the same subject. Fascinating post, Julie.
