102/365 Festive lilies

As though in celebration of the upcoming red, white and blue holiday, this red lily bloomed this week.

One thought I have as I look at this photo is, "Wow, this looks like an allergy nightmare." The pollen on this patch of lilies was very thick, and the yellow dust had fallen down into the flower and out onto the petals.

Luckily my seasonal allergy affliction isn't very severe, so I don't think it bothered me. But I sure feel for the people it does.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/125s, f/2.8 at ISO 250 at about 6:00 p.m. under overcast skies.
