Prickly Pear Blossom

We have Prickly Pear growing up on the hillside near our house.  This one was blooming and I got some good pictures.  I noticed a lot of buds so I knew it would bloom more.  When I returned a few days later - all the flowers were done.  I missed the big bloom.  I guess this is why I don't have many pictures of cactus blossoms.  They don't last very long!
