Stamens Standing Tall

(enlarge for full enjoyment)

This lily bloomed in my yard last month. It's at the end of my driveway where I had pulled in and stopped to open the mailbox. I had my camera with me and just grabbed it and took a few shots. This is exactly how the image came out of the camera. No enhancements, no cropping.
