Time-Lapse Blooming of Pincushion Cactus

This time-lapse sequence took three weeks to photograph and 1100 photos. Of course I didn't have to click the camera for every photo - I built an electronic gadget that took the photos automatically, once every 15 minutes.




A cactus (plural cacti, cactuses or cactus) is any member of the succulent plant family Cactaceae, native to the Americas. They are often used as ornamental plants, but some are also crop plants.

Cacti are distinctive and unusual plants, which are adapted to extremely arid and hot environments, showing a wide range of anatomical and physiological features which conserve water. Their stems have expanded into green succulent structures containing the chlorophyll necessary for life and growth, while the leaves have become the spines for which cacti are so well known.
