It flowered a little early this year but this March Lily (which can also be known as a Jersey Lily, a Belladonna Lily or a Naked Lady Lily – from it’s tendency to have flowers springing from a ‘bare’ single stem without any leaves!) should still be displaying her beautiful 6 petalled flowers into next month!
Just for a change i thought i would capture a flower at night-time using a flash. It’s a little hard to focus when there is no ambient light but i managed to get a decent pic, and even caught a very tiny inhabitant stringing her web between the flowers that i probably would have missed had i tried photographing in the heat of the day. 🙂 The flash adds a beautiful shimmering luminescence to the pinky white petals.
I’d like to say those are raindrops adding highlights to the Lily but seeing as how Perth’s climate no longer seems to include rain anymore they are actually bore water drops from my reticulation system. Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it as raindrops?? 😦
