Morning Glories

My trip from the city to Bosque Santa Lúcia is approximately 25 minutes via BR-163, the Santarém-Cuiaba Highway. I normally spend the mornings at the Bosque, so I get the full show of morning glories along the road. Today I couldn't resist the temptation of taking pictures, even though I didn't enjoy being gawked at by passing drivers. The morning glory flowers were probably thinking the same of me. The genus is Ipomoea. Since there are more than 200 species in the American Tropics, I will again ask professional help in identifying this beauty.
