Default Help with this Lily please!

Hi everyone, I've been rather busy of late, and haven't been shooting anything since Christmas. I hope to change all that soon.

Today I went to my mother's house for an extended lunch. I took my Panasonic ZS8 with me and took a couple of shots of this Lily. It is a "volunteer" and I am hoping some of you flower experts may have seen it and can identify it. These pics are fairly representative of the color, and are straight out of the camera.

Critique is ok, however, the reason for this post is identification purposes mainly. Thanks!

It's a day lily, Robert, but I don't know which variety. Possibly, Hemerocallis or "Christmas Ribbon", but not positive.

Thanks, guys. I had originally googled "lilies" and got a broad brush. After putting in "hemerocallis", I got a narrower field to choose among. A good place to start! Thanks again.
