Hi Arjun. You have taken this white flower so well and at night. You have captured such detail with the water droplets.A pure beauty. well done TFS.

Arjun, Very good image and excellent explanation.
This is a marvel!
A image with extraordinary visual effect!
Fine colors, sharpness and details.
Congratulations for more a excellent work photographic!
All the best,
Bonne profondeur de champ et belle lumière pour cette macro dans laquelle le sujet est bien valorisé par la finesse des détails, malgré un cadrage un peu trop serré amputant une partie non négligeable du sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
GREAT PHOTOGRAPHY work, young Arjun.
REALLY & TRUELY "BEAUTIFUL".
Love what looks & seems like a TINY "Crab Spider" in the center.

Thanks for showing us this rare photograph. Good details, sharpness & POV.The picture you have here is a species of cactii....I believe. This one's called Epiphyllum oxypetalum.
Just a correction in photographer's note. The flower you have mentioned is the faux Brahma Kamal. The true Brahma Kamal grows in alpine weather from Sunflower family. Saussurea obvallata is the name of the alpine plant. Saussurea obvallata, also known as Brahma Kamal, is a species of flowering plant named after Brahma, the Hindu god of creation. It is native to the Himalayas, India, Northern Burma and South-West China. In membranous, boat-shaped floral trusses, it bears 2-6 sessile or shortly peduncled glabrous heads bearing purple or bluish flowers with brown fluff. Even in the cold air of the ice-bound arena, they come to bloom because of the warm space created by the leaf-cover a device that qualifies the plant to become one of the sacred species whose flowers are offered up, as pointed out by Edgeworth, at the shrines of Badrinath. The glabrous, toothed leaves are 10 to 21 cm. long, the uppermost terminating into incurved, bladdery, veined, translucent, globose or hemispheric pale head, 7.5 cm. to 15.5 cm. in diameter. The herb, 15 to 46 cm. tall, has a pubescent or glabrate stem as thick as a little finger. Its thick curved root is applied to bruises and cuts.
