Only 24 Hours

By fentiger    
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.

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.

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.
