Can you ID this Cactus?

I know it's hard to see, but the flowers are distinctive and long, about 10 inches long. It has very short spines. More like stubble: in fact it is easy to touch the green and avoid being stuck. I'll take a daytime shot today. It's blooming again. 4 flowers, that makes 15 since April. thank you.....c
