Shoals Spider Lilies, Flint River, GA

Hymenocallis coronaria, a rare and beautiful flower with an unusual habitat–in among rocks in clean, flowing water.  To photograph them, you have to wade out into the river with your camera.  Because of their specialized requirements, they make lousy garden plants, yet collecting is one of the things that threatens them, that and the loss of their habitat.  It is still possible to find rare wonders if you know where to look, and you don’t necessarily even have to travel very far…
