[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Everybody knows the 'zantedeschia aethiopica', commom name's "arum lily" or "copo-de-leite" (glass of milk) in Brazil. I found this perspective looking from downside, with the sun just over the flower, so I´ve got this pretty colours. I have some other photos and it was difficult to choose one to post here. I found this at São Luiz do Purunã, but it´s very common all around the country. However, this flower is natural from South Africa, well addapted in Brazil. Regards

Hi Jose,
This is beautiful and fits the title perfectly. Very good POV and the colours are superb as a result. Nicely composed too.

Wow! This is a dramatic view of the most striking feature of the Calla Lily, that of its shape. The backlighting brings even more drama, and diagonal composition is great. Well done.

Great POV and good use of the backlight.
Nice compo.

Hi Jose,

Hi Jose
An interesting capture of yourlily from below. The lighting brings out a different look from the lines in the leaves. Great colours, detail and composition. Thanks for sharing this flower with us today.

Jose Augusto,
Essa flor e` conhecida por "Jaro" na Terceira, Acores. Ela e` vadia; crese em toda parte.
Adoro o nome "copo-de-leite".
Am going to have to mark this one as my Fav.
My wife is from Terceira; we used this flower as a symbol of purity to decorate the banquete room on our wedding day.
This is indeed a lovely image. Adoro essa foto.

Hola Zeca,
Una foto excelente que habia visto hace mucho pero quien sabe por que dejé de comentarla. Muy bonito contraluz con una efectiva composicion. Aqui es usada por gente mayor que va a los cementerios (hoy es un dia triste para mi porque un amigo policia murió al caer el helicoptero en Mar del Plata, seria un sencillo homenaje esta flor)

E que "form", Zeca! Como você valorizou um - sempre lindo -, já batido Copo-de-leite.
Belíssima composição, com belas cores que, não por acaso, lembram as do Brasil (até um amarelinho aparece na base da flor).
Minhas homenagens
