Pink Boy

I returned to visit the Victoria amazonica and happy to see that the flower is now fully opened. It is of the pinkish color so the hocus pocus might have happened last night when it opened for the first time and supposedly white. I am pleasantly surprised to see it open during day time, which is 2:11pm when this photo was taken. Books say this flower only opens at night... unless this is not the amazonica species, the books may be wrong. This is interesting and I wish I could get to the truth behind this... some day and certainly not today.
