Botanical name is Zephyranthes crinata.its belongs to family Amaryllidaceae.
It is a perennial herb with underground bulbs,leaves are linear with acute apex,flowers are solitary and yellowing colour.flowering is from june to sept.,seeds are black.
Native of mediterranean region,it is cultivated as ornamental plant but escaped from garden and establish in wild.
Noteworthy feature of the plant which i have observed that it indicate the relation of flowers and the rain.
When plant is in bloom we can expect rain.thats why its vernacular name is wind lily or thunder lily.

Nice and colourful image of the Thunder Lily, Mayuresh.
The droplets of water on the petals justify its name.
Well done and TFS.

Water adds a nice delicate quality to this work. Fine show! Very nicely noted as well.


Hi Mayuresh,
A beautiful flower. We have these in our house. But still not captured a shot of this quality. Excellent composition and colors. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Mayuresh,
Beautiful yellow flower with superb exposure and sharp focus. We want to see more such shots from you henceforth. The water drops and the ant add to the charm and makes it look glamorous. The neutral BG presents a nice contrast and lets the flower to stand out in all its glory. Excellent POV and a fine composition. Kudos.

Hi Mayuresh
After your critique I looked your portfolio and I liked all of your photos. Each photo is better than others. I'im in a big indecision, whichone must I write a critique. I choose this one. Very nice composition and the flower was seperated from blurry BG very well. Bravo and TFS.

Sincere greetings from Turkey to India.

Ladnie uchwycony kwiat. Malutki pajaczek podoba mi sie najbardziej. No i oczywiscie kropelki wody na platkach stanowia ladne uzupelnienie tego zdjecia.


LOVELY AND GREAT note, Mayuresh,
The tiny creature within the flower is an added bonus for your distinct presentation.
Done with taste.
High quality focusing.
Best regards from Canada,

Hello Mayuresh,
Beautiful image showing this yellow Lily covered in droplets. Excellent sharpness and fine colours. Very fine soft background too.
Personally I think you've left too much empty space on the right otherwise a fine composition.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Mayuresh, this appears so simple, yet you've captured such great detail in this shot. It's very good. The lighting is good throughout, the inclusion of the ant and the raindrops really add life to the flower. The depth of field is good from the top to the bottom of the flower itself, while isolating it from the background.

Thanks, John
