Queen of The Night Flower Photography II (Macro)

Yesterday I shared with you the photos I took of this flower (Queen of the Night, Selenicereus grandiflorus) as it bloomed over time, but I also took some macro shots of the different structures it possessed. I loved the spiky sepal which surrounded the petals, these being extremely soft and light, whilst the carpel and stamens were extremely intricate, the stigma resembling some sort of sea anemone (it was quite sticky too). 

It's such a dynamic flower that it's hard to do it justice through mere photography, but if I get the chance, I'd love to take more photos of this... maybe next year. 

Check out the best shots below:
