[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Brahma Kamala - The remarkable thing about these flowers are that the flowers blooms only during the night, and remains for one night. Their fragrance is subtle yet strong. One unique feature about this plant is that the buds originates from the edge of the leaves.
