Photographer's Note

A special experience: a once in a lifetime. An agave flourished in an Amsterdam Hortus Botanicus this year. There comes a long stalk from the plant followed by a beautiful bloom. The plant will then slowly die off after flowering. This picture was taken in Barfleur instead. I asked the owner if I could take a picture. They had a big dog walking around guarding this jewel. The stem seems to grow at an unlikely rate of 30 cm per day. The summer of 2018 was unprecedentedly hot in several countries.
