Turk's Cap Lily With Butterfly, Haywood County, NC - 2010
(Click on photo to enlarge.)
With the abundance of wild flowers in the region where I live, it's hard to pick an absolute favorite. Stick a gun to my head, and I'll say the Turk's Cap Lily gets the nod. I happened to find this sample with a butterfly on it along the Blue Ridge Parkway in 2010. Sometimes you just end up at the right place at the right time.
