A Scent Like No Other

A photo of one of my Moonflowers. I have several types of Datura, which are very poisonous, the flowers, seeds, leaves, etc. These are also VERY powerful hallucinogens. Aside from the extreme beauty of these flowers, I grow them because the scent of the flowers (much like the Night Blooming Cereus) are better than any perfume. Their scent reaches a part of my brain that other smells cannot. Here are a couple images, from two of the types of Moonflowers.

The first (open) flower is with the Nikon Noct 0..95 lens and the second (closed) with the APO El-Nikkor 105mmm f/5.6.
