I am afraid I have no idea of the name of this yellow flower, but I find it strikingly beautiful. It came to my attention taking a walk outside the hotel in Kariba.
One in a short series of pictures taken on a weekend trip to Kariba, whilst visiting Zimbabwe on business in March 1984. They were all shot on slide film and have since been digitised and processed through Photoshop.

Cette resplendissante fleur tachetée est magnifique sur le fond sombre. La photo est agréable et de bonne qualité, avec toutefois un léger manque de netteté. Bravo.

Yellow flowers are always beautiful. I like this macro shot showing the details. The blurred background suits well here.

a striking and really beautiful shot this, love all the delicate detailing. A good transition to digital that has not lost any of its impact. Well done!
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

Good warm vs cold colour contrasts between the yellow flower & lower blue bg, with reasonable sharpness & nice use of a shallow dof. Excellent light contrasts & framing. Tfs! Merry Christmas!

The superb yellow color arise very well and give a beautiful chromatic contrast with the blue of the BG. Good framing too with the details well collected.
Have a nice WE,

Lent lily or narcissus I think...or it looks just like this. A beautiful flower with a perfect background.

Good scan from 1984, Stephen, well kept and preserved photo.
Intense yellow, never mind it's name - looks as a beauty among flowers.

The flower is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the flower. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Stephen, Sticking yellow of this flower you have captured, I think it is a Siberian Iris. Great macro shot, Cheers Iain.
