Lilian Photography – Part III (Featuring Tiger Lilies and Water Droplets)

These are all photos which I took yesterday of lilies and lily plants. Early that morning there had been a torrential downpour of rain. So, as you might imagine, everything outdoors was pretty wet. But even through the storm (which eventually brought about a tree falling down in our yard), most of the flowering plants were unscathed: a little droopy but not really damaged. It was this morning that I found our first tiger lily of the season had bloomed. The water droplets on the black-spotted petals made some of the spots appear magnified. I thought it gave the tiger lily a very cool look.

Tiger lilies produce dark rounded seeds on their long stems, as seen here.

And here are just a few more lilies after the rain:
