These large flower adorn some of the Mediterranean beaches in the late summer. The flower , about 6 cm in diameter, open just before sunset to be pollinated by nocturnal insects. That close the next morning.

Hello Ishi,
A very elegant looking beach flower, I assume it grows from a bulb. I has a rather unique shape and its snow white petals are gorgeous. Sharply focused while displaying very good detail. The exposure is great, I like the WS images as well.
