Tiger Lily: A Beauty That Never Hides

One of the many species of Tiger Lily, this  is a two-colored one. Some are plain in colors, some are with dots on the petals which give them a very enchanting look and others are combination of both - dotted and tri-colored. I can't say most beautiful flower because all flowers are beautiful.

This photograph was taken at ITBP-Dehradun campus on 15 April 2013.

I think this is a red-white version of Lilium Oxypetalum. Wiki says that this variety is native to North-West Himalayas. Then I think it really is!
