I noticed this flower growing in our backyard, any pointers on what it is? I thought it might be a lily but couldn't find a matching image on the web.

That's Tigridia pavonia, also known as Tiger Flower, Jockey's Cap or Shell Flower. It occurs in several colors and you can see some of the various forms on my website at http://www.botanicalstockphotos.com/cat976.htm .
