Datura

There were several datura plants blossoming at the college.
I was early enough to catch the dew on some of them.
I find the most fascinating thing about these flowers is the way they unfurl.
The curves are just so beautiful.
I am linking this with Nature Footstep Blo Ma.

you did a great job capturing the shapes and colors of the flowers. I too like the form they have when still not open.

I love the macros. You really capture them well. Poor Dexter! The spider web, amazing. Have you found any mushrooms? Our forest is filled with them!
