Christmas Cactus

By DicksPics
Bit of an experiment today - taken yesterday with our Christmas Tree as a background.
Took ages to get the lights in anywhere near the best position to get the stamen details unobscured!
Thanks for all views, votes and comments on my 'Tortoiseshell at Threave House Gardens' upload - very much appreciated as ever!Smile
Quite frosty here in the Black Country at the moment.
A Very Happy Birthday to Joan(EMJAYCEE)!!SmileSmileSmile
Have a good day,
