A Night Blooming Cereus making it's single-night-per-year appearance in Florida

After dark, one night per year, a Night Blooming Cereus blooms. By morning, the bloom is gone. If one is lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, he will encounter a flower that is magnificent from every angle! It's difficult to tear one's self away from the beauty. I sat and watched it well into the night!
