Night Blooming Cereus, Queen of the Night, Dutchman's Pipe Cactus
Epiphyllum oxypetalum


Close up of the flower. I noticed a "track" of stamens on the way to the entrance of the tube. The insect needs to land on there and walk over all those anthers to get the nectar inside, covering itself with pollen. Rio de Janeiro, early summer.
