The crinkly translucent white and gold unfolding petals of tropical Cordia boissieri

Every once in a while as I take my morning walks, the light on a flower will turn my head unexpectedly and make me begin to shake! This is one of those "every once in a whiles."

 

The still crinkled, unfolding bud. The light and the shadows. The transparent golden center. The subtle honey-colored pollen-loaded stamens! "Ah!", was what I said as I struggled to get my camera up and ready to capture forever this profound ephemeral creature!
