Moonflower Photo Contest Finalist
For me, this was an unusual find. I have seen these blooming in the very early morning or evening, but this was taken mid-day. Though the day was overcast and rainy, it was not dark. This is another capture from my short photowalk in Wicker Park with John Caruso.

Nothing like those overcast days to capture the gentle beauty of a little dew-bespeckled bloom like this, Nikki. Congratulations.
