What a pretty cactus bloom you have presented to us. The colors are rich yet natural and you have have captured it perfectly. I still remember the first time I saw a cactus plant growing in the wild, it was in the Badlands and a real thrill for me at the time. Nice shot!!
Agréable macro valorisant relativement bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
