    I was told this was a Christmas Cactus. It took 3 years to bloom. Hope you like.

    Very beautiful captures of your cactus's blossoms. Mine is due to blossom any time soon, now, I would say, and I hope to get some nicer photos than I used to take when it last bloomed, too. But all I can see are new leaves... maybe it's another year before it is my cactus's time.

    I like the one with the water droplets so much, and the very close close-up! But also the colours in Photo 4.

    beautiful! Now I have to ask, what did you shoot number 2 with to get the texture? I'm debating whether a macro will give me enough zoom, but i have a couple zoom extensions for my 50mm lens right now. Of course, that isn't much...:grumpy:

    Thx everyone I'm glad you like them, such a beautiful flower isn't it.

    Hey Matt-Bass, I shot it with the 18-55mm 20D kit lens @ 55 and got as close as I can to it around 3ft or so. Then, zoomed in and cropped. Would love to have a macro lens one day... one day.

    Thx all again for coming in :wink:
