[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The flower of a cactus lives very not for long, as a rule less than 24 hours. This flower has blossomed tonight. I have photographed this flower in beams of the coming sun. The dark window curtain of an opposite window is a background. Good viewing. Regards, Alex

Nice sharp shot, considering you are using a macro, the aperture sure makes a difference here, well composed.
