Last night the 4th cactus bud started blooming with 2 more looking like they’re going to open tonight. With the bud being at the lowest level of the 6, I was able to get another angle from the previous photos I’ve taken. I didn’t feel like processing it as a “real” photo as it looks like something a bit alien emerging from the flower. I used Topaz Studio 2 to give it a bit more of a fantasy look.
