These are the morning glories just before they bloom. This was just before dawn, like minutes. By dawn, they are open. Within a few hours they are done. There are subtle differences between the just about to bloom vs the spent morning glory. The just about to bloom morning glory is more sharp and structured. The spent morning glory is less, structured more loose and floppy. If you really want to be present, you can spend a moment and watch the morning glory unfurl before your eyes.
