[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ixiolirion tataricum, commonly known as the Siberian lily or the lavender mountain lily, is a flower of semi-arid areas or high mountains. This specimen was photographed at 2200 a.m., thus its late blooming date. While not common it is not rare. The flowers are about 4 cm in diameter of the open petals tips.
As their stems is quite slender, it was not easy to get a good shot in the wind, quite commonly experienced at those elevations.

The WS shows another specimen showing six flowers at different stages of bloom.

Hello Ishi,
An impressive and beautiful flower, well captured with nice sharpness and natural colours that contrast well against the terracota coloured OOF natural BG. I must be fantastic to see and photograph this growing in the wild.
I like the WS image too.
Thanks for sharing this: have a good week,

Hello Ishi,
What a beautiful bright blue Lily! The colour seems just like that of a Gentian! Excellent sharpness and well done considering the wind!
