I don't think I've see this with my Cereus before: as the blossom from the other night faded, the smaller bud right next to it grew and opened the next day, practically in front of my eyes. It was very dusky by the time it was actually open ("night" blooming Cereus, after all!)
But I shot away because this "encore" is all there is for 2009. With some images, I used the flash and with others, I lucked into a pretty clear photo even with a hand held long exposure. The next morning was full sun, to show the aftermath of the one night bloom.
