A capture from the cactus garden at my local botanical garden between rain showers. This is some variety of Cleistocactus, possibly silver torch. The flower is quite small, extending roughly an inch to an inch and a half from the cactus column. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/16, 1/100 sec., ISO 1000)
