I saw some flowers being delivered to my neighbour yesterday, so I cheekily asked if I could take a few pics. This beautiful apricot lily was the only flower to be in full bloom and here are a couple of the shots.

Hi Carol wow these are both great shots but V1 has the edge for me I love the presentation of both shots and in my humble opinion Smile they are both really good sharp and well composed photographs as well as being really pleasing to look at - Debs

Fabulous light and again it looks so good against a black background. I did give it a shot the other day, tried to cut the flower out and paste it onto the background, not too bad but I need to try harder!

V1 is so lovely with the buds behind the bloom, that's definitely the one for me. I had a chuckle when you said you homed in to the flowers delivery, like a moth to a flame, lol.
