They have regular monsoons in India, even if it’s not a hurricane hitting New York City. And the local english language papers print monsoon photos from readers. Excellent.
First up we received this interesting image from Subhendu Chakravarty, of a cactus plant with drops hanging off that seem to create the illusion of a crocodile’s opened mouth with the teeth showing. He says, “This photograph was shot just after a spell of monsoon rain. It is the cactus growing on the boundary wall of my house.”
Looks to me like a night-blooming cereus. Maybe a Cereus spegazzinii.
