Week 14 by Judy
I had three more flowers from my Christ in the Manger cactus bloom last night. I posted a photo of the blooming flowers of this same cactus on Week 8, but decided to shoot the buds this time. I think the bud is also very pretty and unusual looking. It almost looks like some sort of alien creature to me. The flower opened up just a few hours after I took this photo. Very little editing done; just some cropping and a little bit of lightening of the bud. It was shot using a black velvet background.
