Hi all

Photographed this vine on campus. It had wrapped itself around a Bauhinia tree. I did not know what it was and was taking photographs in the evening around 6 PM. True to its name, the closed flowers bloomed in a matter of half an hour. When it was about 6:30 and nearly dark, all flowers had opened. Here are a few pictures.

Common Night Glory- Rivea hypocrateriformis
