Whether you know this flower as Clivia or Kaffir lily (or even fire lily, bush lily, or St. John’s lily), it’s a vibrant beauty, part of the Amaryllis family. I saw that the light was hitting the back of this flower just right, and I had to capture the fiery moment! (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/125 sec., ISO 200, backlight from morning sun, handheld) Minimal post-processing in Topaz Adjust.
