Day Lily

A quick shot of one of our Day Lilies around our home. It has been very busy at work, so it is hard to go to our usual photo spots. So I was seeing what I could find in our garden. I liked the bright colors of this Day Lily and concentrated on the. Each Lily has six stamens at the base of the petals. In this shot 1 stamen is behind one of the others. Each stamen has a stalk called a filament that ends with a 2-lobed anther filled with dusty yellow pollen. I concentrated more on the center of the flower and let the rest go softer.
