I can't help you with the name but it sure is a beautiful picture.

This is so much better. Great composition, colours and very good choice of background. Don't know the name either. #74340

Nice, well composed shot, Raman !
The flower is called Zephyranthus, or Zephyr Lily. It is a bulbous grass like plant, which flowers during rainy season in tropics. A single flower is borne on a 8-10" stalk coming out right from the ground. If my description of the plant is correct, the name is also correct.

Thank you Darren. Nirmal, you also deserve my thanks for telling me the name of this flower. Are you in some way connected with Botany? #74653

No, Raman. I never read Botany beyond my early school. But, gardening is one of my hobbies. #74655
