Photographer's Note

These lilies grow in direct sunlight, open early in the morning and are closed by late afternoon. They secrete a sweet nectar which serves two purposes a) it brings in large flying insects that help in the cross pollination b) it attracts small crawling insects that get trapped in the nectar and are digested by the plant. The flora is amazing in Thailand.
