[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lilium speciosum, sometimes called the Japanese lily (though there are other species with this common name) is a lily native to Japan. It grows up to around 1.5 m in height. The flowers are white to pink in colour, and strongly scented. It is later flowering than most other species. Many garden forms are in cultivation, and the species has been widely used for breeding of garden forms.

Aaah, what a beautiful composition Ulrike, a flower in full bloom together with another in bud-stage, both captured in excellent pattern and coloration detail. Very good indeed!
