“Real” Life Photography … November 2012

Zygocactus : Schlumbergera truncata is also known as Christmas Cactus, and Crab’s
Claw Cactus. Photographed on black at Denhams Beach, New South Wales, Australia.

It is a member of the Cactaceae family and has flattened, spineless, pendulous branches with
prominent notches at the margins. The flowers are asymmetrical in shape and appear at the stem
tips. Flower colours range from pink, lavenders and reds through to oranges, yellows and whites.


The lovely Zygocactus prefers a warmer climate, but in cooler areas it makes an excellent indoor plant.
It flowers beautifully outside my front door in mid Spring.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.

    Beautiful, love the presentation on the black.

  • Byron, thank you very much for your beautiful comments and favourite ! The black really shows off the individual flower, which is tricky to do in the hanging basket.
