Model D700 using AF Micro Nikkor 200mm 1.4 D lens

1) Most of you probably have never seen one of these, I have only seen about ten myself, and of those only about three in bloom ... They begin to open early morning and finish opening about sunset, and that is the end of that ... I did my best to get a one shot rendering here, the flute like on a lily is so narrow and long manual focus is necissary to capture the colors at the bottom, it took three days to get a good flower...
