Cactus Flower

Each year we've been here we've seen yellow blooms on the many prickly pears on our property, but this is the first year we have seen flowers on these little barrel cactus. I'm not sure what brought them out this year, maybe drought or maybe they just naturally have long cycles between blooms.

They had such an intense color. I don't think these lasted more than 24 hours - they were certainly gone the morning after I took these pictures.
