[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Easter Lily hails from South Africa and is naturalised in the south of Australia. Amaryllis belladonna has a bulb the size of a grapefruit which helps it survive the dry summers. Large light pink flowers appear around March (hence the name) when nothing much else is in bloom. Also called the Naked Lily as the green strapped leaves only show up after the flowers and last over winter. The photo shows the pistil and anthers of a young flower resting within one of the petals, like tired dancers. The whole flower is up to 15cm wide.
