Macro Monday: Zygocactus


MacroMonday
I'm having a bit of a run with flower macro photos at the moment.
I couldn't resist posting a shot of my zygocactus which burst into
flower this week.  It always surprises me when it flowers,
probably because the poor plant is so neglected.  It surprises me
it's still alive.

  2. That is a great capture. Superb focus and sharpness. Isn't that the same family of plants as a Christmas cactus?

  3. In my part of the world this is called a Christmas cactus. And they do survive well....even if neglected. Beautiful photo.

    Here's an invitation to visit CRYSTAL for Macro Monday. Hope to see you stop by sometime.
