One Petal At A Time, The Beautiful Lily Unfolds by 

I was shooting a bouquet of fully-opened lilies and red roses in a vase indoors when I noticed this single lily that was much slower than the rest!

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F5.6, 1/30 sec, ISO 800, focal length 125mm.
