My neighbor, Zdena, grows many Queen of the Night cacti, and one was blooming tonight. She texted me and I ran over. It’s a challenge photographing this amazingly intricate flower with it’s deep, coiled center. The flower is probably eight inches across.

Here’s another shot with different lighting. The scent is just as lovely and powerful as the blossom.

Nature in it’s infinite wisdom created a spectacular flower which blooms only at night! Thanks for stopping by! – Kaye
