Victoria Amazonica

A flower with giant leaves. It only blooms for two nights after releasing a sweet fragance, one night it blooms as a white female, then it turns reddish and it blooms as a male to be pollinated by beetles, then it dies. 
It was in bloom on October 8th, my birthday present, at Zagreb's botanical garden.
