Pine Lily

This lily is on the threatened and endangered list in Florida. There were only three in the area where I was photographing, the other two were at their last stages of growth.

These lilies need just the right area and conditions for them to grow. If the conditions are not right they will stay dormant for up to 5 years. Think how amazing it would be if this area was filled with these lilies.

Lucky enough to get this Cloudless Sulfur butterfly gathering water from the petals!
