Gotcha!

I don’t know if that cactus thingy outside my front door is a night-blooming cereus or not, but it definitely blooms at night, and it is absolutely stunning. I caught it in the act this evening. A wonderful, immense flower bloomed just after sunset. The flower is easily 6 inches across, maybe more.

Update: I guess it is a night-blooming cereus. Cool – thanks Google!
