Blooming Cactus

Red Rock Canyon, Nevada

Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 110 mm: ISO 100: 1/100 sec.: f/8: CPL
This image comes from my hike up Turtle Head.  That day it appeared most plants were just getting ready to bloom as they all had unopened buds on them.  During the hike down the mountain, I was lucky to spot this blooming cactus not more than a few hundred yards from our car.  I wanted to capture a good portion of the cactus in with the flower.
