Tiger lily

The tiger lily nestles close to the southeast eve of the house. I thought it got sun only in the afternoon, but I noticed this morning that a shaft of sunlight fell on the lily and not much else around it.

The blossom faces downward as if it's embarrassed by its beauty. I had to tinker with the exposure on my camera to keep the stark light from overpowering the color.

It was a beautiful thing to behold for a few moments. When the position of the sun changed a few degrees, the lily went back into shadow.


  1. They are truly spectacular things. I have planted more this year and hope that they blaze with the glory of yours.

  2. They are delicate and beautiful flowers.

  3. Tiger lilies. Beautiful. Tiger lilies were one of the first flowers I recognised as a child on my grandmother's farm. I loved the colours and the spots and wondered why,because they didn't have stripes,they were called tiger lilies.
    I had a lot to learn when I was four!

  4. I must admit I am envious at how your eye and the camera work together. I know that is something that doesn't happen. I always enjoy this visit. Good line about the flower and its beauty. Nice.
