Closing Flowers Resemble Fuzzy Pink Flying Bats

As this peduncle is just about out of energy the petals begins to open to close.  I really enjoy following the stages of all blooming hoyas.  From the time they begin puffing up to the time the stems drop to the floor they are fascinating to me. Sometime I enjoy the beginning or ending stages more than the actual flower in bloom.

This flower went from looking like a good old fashioned Hostess Sno Ball cake to a Fuzzy Pink Flying Bat. With the scent a mix of grape and wintergreen these are very cool to experience at close up!
