Draping Beauty on White Petals

Here is a macro photo of a cactus flower that lived less than 24 hours.

The cactus is called trichocereus schickendantzii.

Jorgen Carlson just posted a similar photo a few days back and asked us all to identify the cactus so he caused me to go searching for the name.

I had also taken some photos of this cactus as mine was blooming at the same time as our fellow city daily photo blogger Jorgen Carlson.

How big was this fleeting blossom? And how long before the cactus will produce another?

It is interesting to see your cactus - and thank you for the kind words.
