Class: Magnoliopsida
Order: Solanales
Family: Solanaceae
Genus: Datura
Species: D. inoxia

It is native to the Americas, and introduced in Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe as an ornamental plant. However, the plant is now considered an invasive species in some locations. For example, because of the similarity of its life cycle to that of cotton, it is a pest in cotton fields. It is also a potential seed contaminant.

Datura inoxia, like other Datura species, contains the highly toxic alkaloids atropine, hyoscine (scopolamine), and hyoscyamine.

Hi Anton,
A generous picture of this flower!
I like the clear details and close approach made in this shot.
It's very well balanced the composition with all the leaves around.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Anton,
Nice image of this very good looking flower. The image is lovely and sharp with good detail. Nice.

Hi Anton,
Nice shot on this white Datura inoxia. On the spot focus and well exposed. Lovely pov and composition. TFS.

This is really nice Anton. It is so sharp!...and well exposed too. White flowers can be tricky. I like how you placed it in the frame.

Hello Anton,
This is a very attractive flower capture!
The delicate white petals are benefitting from the sidelight, shining through...
Super details, well composed presentation!

Hi Anton,
Beautiful Datura flower and you have captured it with superb exposure and sharpness. The focus and lighting are spot-on. Nice colours and the dark BG highlights it well. I like your side-on POV to portray it and the superb composition. Kudos.

Belle photo de cette jolies fleur,sa forme de cloche, de trompette est superbe, j' aime beaucoup et elle est bien nette. Amitiés Thomas
je reviens

Hi Anton , my dear friend,
very nice shot. light is excellent and details is great too.
lovely flower
thanks and regards

Loved your notes.
The flower is so beautiful; looking at it, how would one know that it has become a "pest" in some parts of the world. I've seen it grow wild in Terceira, Azores. Christian people adorn the pulpits within the churches. It has a pleasant aroma too.
Thanks for sharing this BEAUTY. Great photography.
Your pal in Canada.
P.S. How is your health these days?

Hi Anton. A good presentation with excellent clarity and colour of this Datura plant which we call a trumpet plant here and it is known to be poisonous as you mention. Good to see a plant i recognise for a change. TFS. Murray.
