Dragon Tree Moon Flower

The Dragon Fruit tree, producer of the moon flower. It only buds for one night, and than wilts come morning. The moth that used to pollinate this beauty is extinct. My hope with this trip, is to write and share not only my art experience, but to also share my observations and encounters, as Hawaii is a climatic hot zone, and really is a good climate indicator for how the whole planet is doing. This includes the whales, dolphins, sea turtles, monk seals, humuhumunukunukupuakua’a, hammerheads, Lilikoi, pueo, praying mantis, and all the species that are here, either regularly or intermittently. An interesting note is that. Most of the flora and fauna was introduced to these islands, it shows that human touch, no matter how small, does make a difference, for better and for worse. It can be said that this place is a rare gem. My hope…that this is something we preserve to the best of our collective abilities. Stewardship. Love Mahaloness
