Nature is not shy to expose its fiery essence

“The Queen of the Night is a flower that slowly starts to open her petals when it gets dark, stays open only one night, and then she’s gone.

You have to be very alert to be there at the precise moment of the miracle; otherwise you have to wait until the next summer.”

Sylvia Malkah Calderón, Tepoztlán, Morelos, MX
