Alstroemeria or Peruvian Lily II by 


Alstroemeria (syn. Alstremeria, commonly called the Peruvian Lily or Lily of the Incas, is a South American genus of about 50 species of flowering plants. Almost all of the species are restricted to one of two distinct centres of diversity, one in central Chile, the other in eastern Brazil. Species of Alstroemeria from Chile are winter-growing plants while those of Brazil are summer-growing.

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.

    Thanks Kathryn for your generous comments. I must admit I like this series of photos of the Peruvian Lilly. I got lucky taking the shot in minimum wind movement using a low mounted tripod ( I rarely do) and the flower at its full beauty . Today the rain has come and so has the flower !
