Night-blooming cereus cacti [OC]

These bloomed outside my house last night - luckily I was up early enough to get some pictures before they closed up! Not stunning pictures but I always enjoy AZ cactus flowers :) The third picture is rotated the wrong way for some reason; it works fine on my computer but it's rotating back to landscape on here. Sorry about that.

    I also want to know how they smell and did bats show up to pollinate them?

      Just looked it up and it looks like you're right, it would have been either bats or moths. It would have been interesting to watch that happen!

      But also I know this morning when I was out there, there were definitely some bees and smaller little insects that were able to get into the flowers before they closed up.

      I am interested but it appears I've run out of tribe slots. If I level up and get some more soon I'll be sure to add BotanicalPics into the list! Thanks for the suggestion!

      Thanks! I have a bunch of other pics on my phone still, maybe I'll add a few more to the snap tomorrow.
