I am used to seeing the spectacularly beautiful and fragrant oriental lily, "Stargazer", at the florist shop. So I was delighted to come across a lone stargazer blooming in a garden park. The sun was in the perfect angle to enhance its sinuous form. I think I made the right decision to leave the rich dark green transparent background untouched. The flower pops out, don't you think?
