“Bending their necks south, the daylilies gossip in the sunlight.”
~ Maureen Morehead, 1998

Saturday Lily

“Saturday Lily” (Tawny Daylily, Hemerocallis fulva) Nikon D300, 340mm, F/13, 1/50s, -0.3EV, ISO 640

Seen each July along dusty roadsides and in just about everyone’s garden, tawny daylilies shoot like fireworks out of the ground, exploding in brilliant, orange color. And just like fireworks, their life is brief – each bloom lasting a single day.

Common? Yes. Worth photographing? Absolutely.
