Always thought this was a Tiger Lily, but it is very spotty and alien looking. An overlay added to block out some intrusive flowers and show off this eye catching lily.

I very much appreciated the response to my Barn Owl and a big thank you to pamelajean, Maiwand and jasonrwl for their User Awards.

Thank you for your timeSmile

Excellent floral shot and presentation, Carole, with the orange flower standing out almost in 3D against the darker b/g tones.

It looks like a Tiger Lily to me, Carole, and beautifully presented. I can see what you mean about it looking "alien", almost like it has spindly legs.

I am feeling in a romantic mood today Carole.
This looks like a tropical fruit that some dusky,grass skirted native girl
has tenderly and sensuously peeled for her hubby's tea.
However,she can try all she likes to please him as he will still head off to the pub
afterwards and leave her to wash the dirty dishes.As she ponders on the tropical
view looking out her grass hutted kitchen window(which of course has no glass in it ),she has
still not twigged as to why that saucy hussy of a woman next door leaves shortly after
her hubby does and follows him down the road !!
OK.romancing time over.
A well coloured shot here.
Mick,

I don't think this lily could be presented any more perfectly, Carole. I am in awe. Your processing is simply spotless (not counting the spots on the lily).
