Dad has grown orchids for twenty years and more, but does not know it's name. Here is a slightly closer shot.

From the 1st image, it's looks just like a clump of tall grass, BUT, what a lovely flower & well captured.

wow the macro really shows off a magnificent flower
the plant itself doesnt look too pretty but the flower is wonderful

not sure it is an orchid though
it doesnt have the structure of one
i am intrigued what it really is

I agree. I think it is a lily, but haven't been able to identify it. Striking colours!
