Oh, wow, I love the time lapse shots! Crying shame the beautiful bloom doesn't last longer.

Barbara R. said...

You had a rare bloom, Night Blooming Cereus is so rare, and you have to indulge an evening of sitting watching its beauty. Congratulations! I posted again about my big sunflower (so I'm obsessed too) again. But I did see a meteor last night too!

Vicki, your photographs of your obsession are magnificent.

Perhaps having this second Cereus bud bloom might warrant thinking of a name (like Blue Moon) to honor the occasion.

I'm delighted that you had the patience to record this beauty. Looks like your flashlight technique worked very well, too. xo

What a wonderful sequence of blooming. The full bloom with black background is my favorite.

Beautiful! The 10:26 sequence would be gorgeous framed! Thank you for sharing! :-)

Thérèse said...

What a beauty! You need to make a poster out it!

Vicki Lane said...

Just realized I left out my favorite shot -- 10:28. So I added it.

Most definitely a worthy obsession.

Spectacular sequence! Thank you so much for sharing!
