Sunlight Strikes an Orange Clivia Miniata by 

Orange Clivia Miniata , taken at Heronswood Homestead, Dromana, Mornington Peninsula, Australia

The afternoon sun came through the overhead trees to shine right into the cup of the flower, a most unusual phenomena, a lucky capture!

Clivia miniata, also known as Bush lily, is a species of clivia, from South Africa. It grows to a height of about 45cm in the shade of trees and shrubs, and flowers are red or orange, with a faint, but very sweet perfume.
Clivias are named after Lady Clive the Duchess of Northumberland, whose grandfather was the famous Clive of India

I began my photographic hobby at the age of 12, developing and printing 120, 620 &35mm B&W, forever learning and refining the fascinating art of photography. Now at 78 I still continue with increased enjoyment using digital medium – and still learning.
My favourite places for photography are the Melbourne Zoos . These are the Melbourne Zoo , the Healesville Sanctuary and the Werribee Open Range Zoo.
