      In recent years many formerly separate genera have been included in [Echinopsis[/i].

          This Epicactus hybrid has some genetic ancestry of night-flowering species. It flowers day and night and is highly-scented.

          I hoped the three flowers would open together but it seems we are to get one per day. The one on the right is almost over and the bud on the left will open later today. Each is about 6"/15cm diameter.

          Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/60* f11 ISO 800, hand held. I used the short period of still air to photograph them outside, in shade from the early morning sun. * 1/80 for the stereo pair.

          The stereo is crosseye.

              Nice detail but, as with most stacks, little impression of depth.

                  Three of a Kind

                  Yesterday I posted images of an Epicactus hybrid with three flowers at different stages of blooming, Today I show another hybrid where the flowers also opened sequentially but a much shorter period, such that they were all fully open together. These are smaller than the previous one, the "cups" being about 10cm diameter.

                  These were shot in shade, except the last. The twiggy background of the first image more closely resembles the natural habitat of the parent species of the hybrid.

                  The stereos are crosseye.

                        I took a shot of a partly opened flower this morning to show how the colour changes with maturity. It was very much less pink than the one which opened yesterday. Three hours later, the colour (not shown) is intermediate.

                        The image of the plant with the two colours showing is not as sharp as the others but it is about colours.

                            I have no idea what this is but the landscape is alien.

                              Its a cornflower. I usually grow them in my garden. But not this year.

                                This is so lovely. I have one , just opening, so I am curious about what you used and how you achieved it. In my shots I have not gone that close, but it works really well.
