Lilies

Challenge #245 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
Lilies are a very diverse family of flowers, of the Lilium species. However, for this challenge, you may enter pictures which are not 'true' lilies, such as daylilies, (Hemerocallis family), arum or calla lilies, (Zantedeschia), or waterlilies. The flowers should be still outside in their natural environment, and not indoors in vases as cut flowers. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of your entry: 1,600 pixels on the longer side. And remember folks, LILY has only ONE (1) L in the middle of the word.

These lilies were introduced in Stanley Park for the Queen's Jubilee in 1938. Apparently, they liked it there, as they continue to flourish in the environment. This lake is accessed by a leisurely hike not far from the main paths within this beautiful park. When in Vancouver in summertime, be sure to see this for yourself.

Notes: While I lay prone on a wooden dock with my camera dangling a few inches above the water, onlookers asked, "aren't you concerned about getting the camera wet?" While the manufacturers of both the body and lens claim that each are splashproof, I was pretty sure I had the shot I needed, so no further risks were taken.
