Cactus flowers

Recently I had some lovely reddish flowers on my small cactus. Each flower was almost as large as the cactus itself. Hereby some pictures of them. There were three flowers in total, one flowering before the others until at the end I had a few days three flowers before the first one started to die. Have a close look at the pictures and you may be able to see the pollen and details of the carpel.

Also beautiful in black and white.

The whole cactus with its three flowers.

Two flowers, one open, the other almost open.
