[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This flower blooms at night, and I believe it is for only one night - a Cereus (Hylocereus Undatus). I caught this lingering bloomer one morning on an overlook near the WWII pill boxes on the island of Oahu - looking out over Waimanalo Beach and Manana Island (background). Wish I'd of had the Nikon with me, but the Canon is much lighter... and it occasionally gets excellent shots! Lat/Long are estimated.

Hello Kelly,
Welcome on TrekNature with this nice specimen completely unknown for me. I wish to to enjoy this site and the nature photography. Maybe you can add some sharpness (due to the size reduction) but the photo is good. I like the composition. To the next one... Best regards,

Bonjour Kelly,
Il me semble que ta publication manque de contraste, ou du moins s'oppose mal à l'arrière plan, et c'est domage car le sujet est finement détaillé et agréablement coloré.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
