Red Amaryllis Flowers

Most often, these beautiful red Amaryllis flowers are mistaken for lilies. Its flower stem is erect, 5-60 cm tall, 1-3 cm in diameter, and hollow; it also bears 4 large flowers at the apex, each flower 10-20 cm broad, with six brightly coloured tepals (three outer sepals, three inner petals, with similar appearance to each other).  This photo was taken at sunrise and the yellow color seen on the tepals is the result when rays of light pass through the flowers.
