Sego Lily

Calochortus nuttallii

Liliaceae   (Lily Family)

 

Same type as yesterday, but this is what they look like fully open. 

The cactus is just a neighbor...  as is the beetle!

Love this image, with its thorny, exotic backdrop.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Ray!
Such a delicate flower has no fear whatsoever of the thorns, Elizabeth. I suppose there's a wee sermon there?!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think you're absolutely right, Ginnie... Could be a metaphor for some people we know... smile

Such a delightful lily, radiant in its surroundings, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Lisl - She does soften up the desert...

The more you look the prettier it appears to be
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think you're right, Chris!

I think I prefer it before it fully opens, as in yesterday's shot. Still nothing takes anything from its beauty.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - I like the petals folded ever so gently!
Hum...deux photos vraiment très belles ...
Merci
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Claudine!

To this insect the spikes are like a huge forest.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No problem navigating through it!
Quelles épines ! Jolie fleur.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Those of the Prickly Pear Cactus, Martine! Thank you!
You wouldn't want to upset a spiky neighbour like that
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No - not much does... the Prickly Pear is a docile creature unless you fall on it! We have some cacti who's spines are hooked at the end, and attach themselves to you at the slightest bristle... they are not nice at all! Others have a toxin on them to enhance the pain!
I love the coexistance seen in the first shot and the beauty in the second.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Mary - I love this thoughtful comment!

A lovely little flower
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: One of my favorites!

A great place to hide against picking human hands. Great shot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Absolutely - Nature's got it figured out! smile Thank you, Louis!
