Wings and  Bright Color !
From The North Carolina Native Plant website:

Scientific Name: Lilium superbum

Common Name: Turk's Cap Lily
Lily : Family Liliaceae
Native/ Perennial

It is either great blooms -- or none ..
During a dry year - we get leaves...

We have had more than usual amount of rain, so Lil is hanging in there.

So, pardon me ..
I'm going out to sit with her to make sure she knows I am enjoying her orange beauty ~

Not ignoring the American Lady (who was visiting my neighbor) and the Skipper .. that I hope PamJ can tell me his name ... I've turned the pages of Kaufman Field Guide to Butterflies of North American until my fingers need a rest ~

Lilium superbum is perhaps the best example of the Latin name out-doing the common one (which isn't half bad anyway!) that I know!.
Excellent collage again, Peggy!

All the images in the collage are very beautiful and of excellent quality. However, the quite gorgeous lily against the blue sky is exceptional. Thank you for sharing these.
