Lily of the Incas
LILY OF THE INCAS (ALSTROEMERIA AUREA), EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, MARCH 16, 2010
Tamron SP AF 90mm f2.8 DI Macro
1/4 sec. f11
This showy bloom, also known as the Peruvian Lily, grows in the Andes Mountains of Chile and is often imported for sale in American supermarkets. In one of them I bought a bunch for our dinner table, later deciding decided it'd make a good subject for a macrophotography setup.
