|Could this flower be Lilium canadense?

|It looks like Lilium grayi, maybe, or a hybrid of it. Need more info, ANY info, if you want a good answer.
Where was this taken?
In the wild?
do the flowers open more?
do you have a pic of the inside of the flower?

If these are Lilium grayi, I actually just bought a couple of these from Fraser's Thimble Farm as a Xmas present for someone in Western NC. That said, I became somewhat alarmed about the chance of them surviving after reading this:
It seems that there is a high percentage of hybridising with L. canadense so if you found these in the wild...to answer your question...they could be a bit of both. I know very little about id'ing lilies so I defer to the experts but if it is L. grayi....and on your property......research as much as you can...but if its yours, congratulations!!! you must be doing something right...it looks very happy!
