Saguaros Flowering in September?

I've been stalking a neighbor's saguaro this week because it is flowering.

For those of you who don't see these giant cacti every day, saguaros usually flower in June, not September.

The flowers usually open at night, but these are staying open well into the morning, which makes them accessible to day-active pollinators like these honey bees and the carpenter bee on the right.

With all the buds, looks like they'll be enjoying flowers for a few more days at least.

Have you seen any flowers or bees this week?
