Backlit Yellow Daylily

(Toledo, OH) The evening sun shining through the center petals of this yellow daylily created an effect that reminded me of a fiery light, or perhaps even a small star. I think the yellow coloring magnified the radiance of the sunlight, making the plant glow with an unnatural brilliance.

The mid-90s heat of this sweltering Saturday also made the fluorescence of this yellow daylily seem more incendiary. The flower appeared to glow as if it possessed a fire of its own, an internal and infernal flame that could sear the picket fence behind it.
