Klaus,

Yes, this is a graceful and unique pose! What happened? Is this just the flower bent over in a natural variation or was it growth-distorted? Do you think that there are insect larvae, perhaps, that has distorted the flower? I have seen deformations when the Cuban Thrip eggs hatch between the layers of leaves of ficus hedges in my garden.

Or perhaps it is not distorted at all and just the unusual angle you chose in this capture?

Asher

Just naturally grown by mother nature, they all look like that, very pretty!

And what a performance!!! Beautiful!

I have some orange lilies in my backyard that also grow with their heads a little down; I think it's normal. There is the fact that mine will only bloom in July, and yours are already blooming! Oh my! :-D

Thank you Maggie! Happy Easter!

This is a special type, lilly family but no ordinary lilly, which indeed bloom much later, also here. There are native in the undergrowth in light forests. It is Trout lily, Erythronium americanum https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erythronium_americanum This park I usually take my photos in, has close working relations with American universities and gardeners, hence why these species made it here. We do have a very pretty european "sister" of it though https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erythronium_dens-canis
