Glory lily or Gloriosa superba

Glory lily or Gloriosa superba exhibits one of the most beautiful flowers and in the best colours too. This flower was photographed at the Orange County Resorts, Kabini. This was the first time i ever saw this flower in complete red colour [ normally it is half red and half yellow]. But it was awesome none the less!!! Unfortunately this flower had a very short lifespan and withered away on the same evening this photograph was taken.
