FINALIST ~ FEBRUARY 2013 ~ FLOWERS

I went to the web and found out a few things about this flower that are quite interesting. One it usually blooms at night and the flowers are closed during the day unless it is overcast and I lucked out as it was windy & cloudy when I photographed it.

Datura Inoxia or D.wrightii or D. meteloides.
It is also named Hindu Datura, Indian Apple, Jimson Weed, Sacred Datura, Devil's Trumpet and Thorn Apple.

It comes in pure white or with the purple edge as in my image. The whole plant is poisonous.

Dear Photo Friend: I feel that something has changed at Better Photo but cannot tell you just what has happened. I have been here since 2003 and most every month I have written to all the winners telling them how their work touches me. I have witnessed photographs that bring tears to my eyes and colors that are unbelievable, now I am worried that like all good things that it will not be here the next time I look.
But the feeling of not being able to congratulate all the winners for the hard work, and sharing their talent with all of us makes me so sad.
However it turns out and even if this is the last time I have this privilege, to let you know how exceptional your work has been, please know that I will never forget.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you for the month of February, 2013, I send my very best to you always, Merna Nobile
