I have Turk's Cap Lily - a native perennial of North Carolina US --
It is either full of beautiful orange blooms or we have leaves for the year.
This year was the Year Of The Turk's Cap .. lost count of the number .. but to say I'm thrilled -- puts it mildly ~

Hope you don't mind me sharing these on your page ... they just took my breath away this year.

@PeggyC, I spotted your thread here in the Plant Photos Forum, a suggestion: rather than attaching your images to jmorth's photo of Queen Kong lily to which they are unrelated to, please add your photos to the database entry. Thumbs up

I comment on the photo composition. I am going out on a limb because I achieved the same effect when taking a photo of a lily when using a flash. The light reflected back from the flower, but the light that didn't hit a surface never reflected back to the camera leaving the background black. I think something such as this happened here, resulting in a superb photo.
Life is a journey of adventure and discovery, sail bravely into each new day.

It was taken at night with a low flash setting.
Thanks for the complement.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.
