It’s that time of year and the neighbor’s fence-sitting cereus cactus is wonderfully at it again. I noticed the blooms-to-be about a week ago, but wasn’t expecting them to open up so quickly.

And when they do, the early-morning bees drop any interest in sunflowers and literally go swimming in them. So of course I stuck my iPhone’s cam all up in the bloom to catch the action. It’s pretty cool:

Sorry to cut off right at that particular moment. My iPhone shut down right then… either because it’s afraid of bees or I was holding it wrong. Or perhaps it was just trying to spare you from listening to me blather on.
