The tiny flower of an Epiphyllum (cactaceae)
also known as the Orchid cactus or Strap cactus. The stems are flat and as the alternative name suggests, strap-like. Many grow into quite enormous plants with huge flowers, some flowering only in the night and some with wonderful scent. This version is small growing and the flowers are around 1 cm in size. This image was taken with my original camera, the bg was black card with a touch of PS used to darken later.
Many thanks to all who so kindly endulged me with voting for "I've Found the Easter Bunny". As promised, he isn't lingering too long. Regret there are so many just clicks from me - the arm continues a problem so please forgive.
