Les Lis du Japan

Title: Les Lis du Japan
Translated Title: 
The Lilies of Japan
Although not native to our climate, the Japanese lilies blossom in July and August. The 24-hour blooming cycle is captured here in 20 seconds through slow motion. Often cultivated for decortive use on platters and in gardens, the flowers are a red-streaked orange, punctuated by a pepper black center. "Who doesn't know about the beautiful lilies, the buds of which develop in the last days of June?" - Desmarest
