Default Beautiful but only for one day

I noticed the buds on this Sobralia powellii yesterday and knew I only had this morning to take the photos. The blossom is pure white with a gold throat and a nice perfume. The flower is a little over 4 inches across.

That's really nice! Too bad the flower fades so quickly.
