'Leonides', a Golden Perennial

While visiting Jims Day Lily Farm in Ticonderoga New York, I was struck by the intensity and size of the cultivar “Leonides” with its large lush pure sunshine-yellow petals. I tried to capture that experience on camera but torrential rains were about to begin and I did not have time to adjust the settings or to take a series of shots that would have allowed me to select the best one. The camera seems to have shrunk the size of the petals. They are larger in reality than they appear here in digital life.
