Flower photography is not my forte but I could not resist photographing this day lily to prolong its life beyond the 24 hours that it is in bloom.

Update on yesterday's image: Chris (SlowSong) was correct it was on a Narrow Boat (actually called Captain Custard moored on the Kennet and Avon Canal at Hungerford). The answer that I had in mind for the the riddle was Shark Infested Custard as stated by RonnieAG but I am very impressed by some of the other answers which are equally as relevant.

Hurray for me! I rarely get anything right. Grin

What a lovely flower. Super detail and nicely separated from the b/g.

Sharp and detailed, Albert. The orange colour 'zings' against that green background.

It may not be your forte, but you are pretty good at it, beautiful colour, the bokeh is perfect and the detail is harp, what more do you want GrinGrin

Yes, a day lily lasts just a day, and I think that's why I have hundreds of pictures of mine. They are irresistible, and this one is a beauty, with the addition of the buds, whose turn it will be next.
