Great closeup. Are they that bright/colourful to attract insect pollinators or just because they grow in bright sunshine?

Thank you all for your comments.

Gee - Cactus flowers only last a few days at the most, and therefore have to be brightly coloured in order to attract pollinating insects, before they wither
