A Tiger up Close

There were some lilies at the edge of the field at the end of my driveway. 
I loved how their petals curled up around.

I just had to see what they looked like through a macro lens.

I call them Tiger Lilies.















I have also found out they are called Turks Cap Lilies from Carol over at Carol Mattingly Photography .

I like that name best, it does look like a cap of sorts with the curly petals. 

Linking with MACRO MONDAY 2

Wishing everyone a great week.

Very unusul lily. Beautiful details.
The tiger lilies spot and colors reminds me of a cheetah or leopard more than a tiger...smile. They are beautiful! I had them in my garden in NY but the deer usually eat them as soon as they bloom here.

So did you ask it "What's up?" IF that's too esoteric, I apologize. Lovely shots.

They are beautiful. I grew up with Mom having them in the garden and we always called them Tiger Lilies.

Felicia, these are superb images!!! I love every single one. And I was trying to remember who told what they were...so glad you saw that.
Beautiful macros of a lovely flower ... I've too have only ever heard them called Tiger Lilies out here in the Pacific Northwest, but I like the other name too.
