Tiger Lily

The lily crop has been tremendous this year. One after another the lilies in our yard have been taking turns blooming. I’ve been waiting a week to see how the Tiger Lilies were going to pop. Here is the first one.

I was not disappointed. The great thing is there are more to come.

I was lucky enough to capture some interesting close-ups. Check out the structure of the different parts of the lily, especially the jagged area toward the inside of the flower.
