A Rare Bloom

Don’t know how often this cactus flower blooms or when since I have never been here this time of year.  But from what I know of cactus flowers they are slow to mature and many  produce flowers only rarely—once every 5 years perhaps?  The plant itself is sinewy and its tentacles are over 6 feet long.  The flower blooms for one day only.  Then retreats.  Folds.  Closes.  Withers.  An example of the fleeting nature of beauty.
