Now this is a timelapse flower movie! Four hours and thirteen minutes, one photograph every minute. I’m so pleased with the result! The animation is smooth and perfectly captures nature’s beauty. What’s rather amazing is that there is motion between every single frame. The cactus never spent a full minute motionless. Absolutely gorgeous!
The other five flowers – as you may recall, there are seven – look like they will open tonight. They always open at night. The video above, for example, spans from 20:18 to 4:31. I don’t know about this cactus’ allegiances, but it sure seems to be celebrating the United States Independence Day.
