|This Flower is called Brahma_Kamala (in Kannada, a South Indian language). "Kamala" is lotus.. Brahma is God, Creator.. but generally the word Brahma is used to describe anything "big".|
Could not get the botanical name for it.. if anyone could help..please...
It develops as a bud for about a month or so, then blooms and withers in one day. It usually starts blooming around 7:00 PM, blooms fully around 10:00 to 11:00 PM, stays for one hour and then starts withering.
Did not use any other ligts except for the inbuilt flash. Tried teh same photograph with many options (Stop and speeds), selected the one which was best.

Beautiful flower, unfortunately the inbuilt flash burned the shade of white.
Great to see bramha kamal on this site; I had never seen it otherwise. Once someone came from Kedarnath region; he gifted a dry flower to me. TFS.
