    I love how big these cactus flowers can get. This one was at least four inches across.

    Thanks guys.

    Unfortunately they don't last very long, a week at the most.

    Nice!
    I have been trying to capture the fleeting flowers of the Trichocereus (sp.?) before they fade, but they only last 24-36 hrs.
