This Clivia was taken yesterday around lunchtime when the sun was shining brightly on it. I could not resist and had to take some photos (f13 1/80sec / natural light from window / no flash).

"Clivia is a genus of monocot flowering plants native to southern Africa. They are from the family Amaryllidaceae. Common name is Bush lily.

They are non-woody evergreen plant, with dark green, strap-like leaves. These leaves produce clusters bell-shaped flowers on a stalk above the foliage. The flowers somewhat resemble those of certain varieties of Lilium or Amaryllis. Orange is the most common colour but there are also Peach, Near White, Apricot, Red and Yellow varieties." (Wikipedia)

Hoping you stop by and enjoy this photo. All comments and critique welcome.

Thank for all the comments on my previous photos. They are always appreciated.
Have a good evening,

Jean-NoŽl

A daring shot in full sun, but you pulled it off beautifully. Dramatic coloring too.

A plant I am not familiar with-- but I should be-- very beautiful the way you have portrayed it--in full sunlight-- the bg enhances the colors-- good choice!

Jean, always nice to see flowers displaying themselves against a dark background, esp. in this one they seem to glow like coals on a fire; always very well composed with a diogonal line in it. alfred
