Another kind of lily

Different breed, and in color. I don't think this one is native but an immigrant that's adapted to our environment. All suggestions, critique, edits welcome-

I love it! I see nothing to critique. The light!!! The light is exquisite, and the composition is wonderful, with the two tiny developing leaflets balancing the great flower, like tiny moons orbiting a gas giant. :thumbup:

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thank you Chuck. I wasn't sure about that quirky little touch in the left corner, I am blaming Freeman Patterson for it, right or wrong.

Absolutely beautiful. Is this wild or in an arboretum? Can you tell us more about it? S-
