Geniparana flower

I love you, I love you not. Two pedals were already missing from this saucer-sized geniparana flower (Gustavia augusta) when I found it last week. The flowers normally don't last for more than one or two days, but they are real showoffs in the forest. A flash of white with a green background is noticed right away. Some flowers get even larger than this one!
