No idea what it is, but it looks like it's a bit droopy..

This looks like the amazing Night Blooming Cereus - a massive white fragrant flower that blooms after about 10:00pm at night, so this is the 'morning after'.

Wonderful image!

Marilyn's exactly right, Mary - that's what it is! I once stayed up into the wee hours of the night to see one bloom unfold completely on my plant - the fragrance was heavenly and it was one of the best "flower shows" I ever attended! Great capture, as Marilyn puts it, of "the morning after".

Marilyn and Val, thanks so much for providing the name for this.
On the Internet, I learned that Night Blooming Cereus is also called " Oueen of the Night". It's earned its title ~ here's a youtube link to watch it bloom with time-lapse photography:

Thanks for commenting, ladies, and thanks also to Tiia, Bobby, Anthony, Dominick, and Barbara, for taking the time to comment on this. I appreciate your friendly feedback!

New to me and from the sounds of it, I am missing out on the beauty of this gorgeous flower in looks and in fragrance. If this is how gorgeous it looks in the closed stage, one can only dream of what it looks like in full bloom. Such lovely colors and presentation dear friend.
Have a wonderful day.
