A Lily Reflected .....

Victoria Amazonica   ~

I love to capture this exotic lily which has a very short life-span
When she first opens she is beautiful but towards the end of her life
she falls into a bedraggled mess ! 
I have chosen to show her youthful hours
before the ravages of time commence to diminish her beauty

"Though we travel the world to find the beautiful
we must carry it with us or we find it not"
                                                                    Ralph Waldo Emerson

Beautiful flower. I would not have recognized it as a lily if you had not given this information.
