Standing Tall

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 2 July 2020 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

The filaments stand tall to showcase the anthers as they surround the "glittered" stigma in this close-up of an asiatic lily. Happy early Independence Day to those in the States!

Spotted on June 21, 2020.
