As I can't post HTML at the moment I'm afraid I need to provide a link to my Flickr site. If you follow this http://www.flickr.com/photo_embed.gne?id=4713438163 you'll see a cactus flower opening up overnight (last night) captured using a Canon 40D and a TC-80N3 controller/timer. My first ever time-lapse animation - so be gentle :D

I had a cactus once that made flowers...blossomed & died in the same day or something like that.

I would prefer more frames to the time lapse,but for your first atempt,it's very good. :)

Imao cactus has got some of the most remarkable flowers, and yours (cybermystic) is no exception. I once had a big cactus (looking somewhat similar to yours) that got 5 yellow flowers so big that the cactus was fully cover by them. Sadly cactus tend to die shortly after they blossomed ... I guess that why I stopped having them. Anyway despite the few frames it is an interesting animation, so thx for sharing.

Yep - I've learned from this one that more frames would give a smoother animation :D

This cactus has produced several huge flowers twice a year for around the past 5 years - I really hope it doesn't peg out on us :shock:
