Soap Plants send up a tall stalk, covered with buds. Every late afternoon, a few flowers blossom on each stalk. Pollinators, especially flies, crowd around; they have only one afternoon at this flower. Also, a waiting Hawk takes flight after a passing bird; see "A Day at a Time" for the images other than macros.
