Flies & Flowers & Buds Oh Boy

Flies have a lot of freedom.
Outdoors and in our homes sometimes.
Today I spent the day in the yard working, found this one lingering around my roses.
Great now I am stalking flies!

Not in the sun yet,blooms are back on a plant named Barb Mar in front yard.

Newest bloom of the day.
In fact this cactus has never bloomed before in its life.
I did do some filters on this one, couldn't get the camera or a new lens to do what I hoped for.
The photo does not give this one justice for how it really looks.
The light was never right in this location.

What a sweet scent.
What is the name of this flowering cactus?

Center stage of the yellow, white, and green center.

Then the white center cactus's started up.
Is it all the rain we had?
The sun, the heat, moon or stars?
Maybe it is steroids.

Those are spectacular photos, so crisp and sharp. That must be one fine lens you have. Very nice images.

No new camera, the same Nikon. A lense I am using is different, and I am still learning.

That cactus flower is amazing, stunning beautiful. I have never seen myself but have seen in internet and they really rocks. The inner part of the flower (don't know the right word) is absolutely breathtaking, green and yellow.....ah. I don't have enough english words to describe how amazing it is at lest for me:)
