Beauty and the beast

The ugliest plants in the garden…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…until the rains come!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The flowers are about 6inches (15cm in diameter) and only come out at night.   

There are certain types of moth who pollinate these flowers…

…and in the first hour after dawn the hornets come to feed.

 A beautiful and idylic scene.

But all is not peaceful in this Garden of Eden.

A spider waits…

…for breakfast!

Even on a minature level nature can be just as fascinating and exciting as

watching big game hunt their prey!
