Thank you all so much! This was photographed two days before the hurricane blew through late last summer. I borrowed the lighting idea (a flashlight held behind the flower) from another poster in the epi's plantfiles entry. I took several dozen photos, but this one stands out. This was my epi's first bloom. Thank you everyone for your kind words! -Joe
