Dragonfruit flowers

Last night my neighbour called me and told me that the dragonfruit flower had opened.  this one has dropped over onto her side of the fence. It seems to be night blooming, lovely huge flowers, so there we were, cameras in hand, recording the event.
Just look at those stamens.... 
This morning the flower was already beginning to droop and close up.  then all the energy will go into forming some yummy dragonfruit.

 There are two other flowers forming.
