Lilly with pollen stains.  Nikon D7000
5th August 2013

The lilies have opened at last (again, almost a month late) and are looking great in their pink pyjamas.   The rain has been washing the pollen onto the lower petals however, staining like mad.

The pink and yellow has created a rather nice apricot colour, not unattractive at all.

I had the sense not to go too close however as the pollen is known to be a sod to shift from clothes.

EDIT: I almost got stained last year too.
