14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This cactus flower is only around for 3 days only a year then they are gone until next year so you don't want to miss the opportunity to capture these most beautiful flowers . I chose monochrome to enhance the feeling of the flower and show the texture and form in all it's glory.
