1000/453: 19 May 2011: Lily Stigma

Another attempt to vary my flower photos - this is a rather large lily which Marion brought home the other day. They have a rather powerful smell - which you can love or hate - and a very dramatic stigma - like this one in fact.

Edit: Have changed the post title from ‘stamen’ to ‘stigma’, because someone who knows considerably more about these things than me has explained the difference. Now…about the birds and the bees…
