Passion fruit flower

Wild passion fruit plants love this summer weather, which is noted for high light intensity and heat. The vines are all over the place, but not all of them bloom. The leading vine must snake its way out of the darkness of the woods to find the light. This vine is within 10 meters of the dirt road leading into Bosque Santa Lúcia, which means its not very sensitive to the dust thrown up by passing vehicles.
