There are around 110 species in the lilium family and one of them is the Orange lily or fire lily (lilium bulbiferum) which is native to Europe.
It is growing from a bulb which some people prefer to eat.
There is one thing to be kept in mind with this nice flower - it should never be presented as a gift because it signifies death to a recipient.

Nicely shown Mitja. The colors show up quite vividly and everything is very nicely framed.

Hi Mitja,
a pretty, well describing presentation, showing the blossoms of the Fire Lily in all its spectacular glory - and in clear and well details also the bulbs that have given it its Latin name.
With thanks, and best regards,
