The dragon fruit plant, also known as the pitahaya or pitaya plant, is a vine-like cactus native to Central and South America. Although it is known to have beautiful flowers, the plant blooms only briefly, and at night.This photo was taken jus after sunrise. After it has flowered, the plant may begin producing the dragon fruit. I've seen a number of them in Florida. This one was growing along a backyard fence along the Pinellas Trail in Largo Florida These are about nine inches across, so I also have a few close up macro shots.
About L Bosco
I love to tell stories. About twenty years ago I had my first freelance travel article accepted by a magazine. Much to my surprise, the magazine expected photos along with words.

The last twenty year have been an incredibly exciting time as resources for photographers have exploded. I have been lucky enough to have some great teachers along the way...
