The flower attract many bees. I was able to get many shots and this is another presentable image.

Calotropis gigantea (Crown Flower, Giant Indian Milkweed, ดอกรัก, ป่านเถื่่อน, ปอเถื่อน) is a species of Calotropis native to Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India and China.
It is a large shrub growing to 4 m tall. It has clusters of waxy flowers that are either white or lavender in colour. Each flower consists of five pointed petals and a small, elegant "crown" rising from the centre, which holds the stamens. The plant has oval, light green leaves and milky stem.
The flowers last long, and in Thailand they are used in various floral arrangements. (Source: Wikipedia)
