This Asphodel lily is flowering rather late in the year on the parched hill outside of Comares
It stands out so beautifully in this drying scenery. Lovely shot.

I guess some kind of orchid. I was watching Autumn watch, and they were just banging on about the weird weather all over Europe. Maybe the laate flowering is part of that oddness

@CElliottUK: It's a lily Chris. Autumn watch what an odd programme that is. It feels as though it should be broadcast at about five o'clock. Smacks of Blue Peter don't you thinK? :)
Very beautiful framing . Soft tones for this lovely asphodel .

I always learn new things here, for instance I didn't know that wild lillies were prevalent in Europe, other than on water.

@Curly: You get a small yellow asphodel with a similar flower stalk, though not so many flowers, growing in bogs in the UK
that's according to the weather condition maybe

Now imagine you lying on the ground that pricked ... The emotion for photographing this beautiful wild flower that I know well ... has made it possible to not think about the discomfort of the place! An extraordinary composition friend! Best regards, Adela

Yep,Autumn watch is odd. It' sort of "Later with Jules Holland", mixed with "Sesame street", all served up with a huge amount of amateurish incredulity. But at least Bill Oddey wasn't on it last night-small mercies

@CElliottUK: now what is wrong with Odd Billy :)
Wow, such an odd and unique looking Lily. It's beautiful in the way it's flowering from the bottom up. Well found and a fabulous shot of it amongst these grasses.

A fine shot of this blooming plant and the grasses surrounding it.

It stands out beautifully against the brown grass. I like the landscape in the background.
