Taken with a Nikon D60 and Sigma Macro lens. Not sure what this is, some sort of tiny Lily I think…. but thought it was pretty… a tiny little thing with my footy team’s colours ! Taken at Katoomba, Blue Mountains National Park, NSW, Australia.

Delightful capture – check out the family Stypandra as this might be S. glauca
Ok will do…. thanks again ! :)
That is either a Stypandra glauca (Nodding Blue Lily) or a Dionella. I get the two mixed up. Try Googling these two for clarification.
Thanks Mate, will do… I think you’re right.
PS .. great colours .. nice macro.
Thanks Michael :)
This is a Dianella, possibly D. revoluta but maybe D. caerulea or D. tasmanica. The flower characters are distinctive for each of the species, particularly the number of veins in the tepal segments and the colour of the anther and the staminal swelling. This latter is only found in Dianella which is why I can assure you that is the genus it belongs to.
Thanks Greg, you sure know a lot about wildflowers ! I thought I knew a lot, but not so sure now ! Thanks for your help :)
