Raiko's Flower

Sorry if it's already been here, but I've just found it out *and so proud of myself ^^~*))
Higanbana in Japanese, or Lycoris radiata in Latin, Red Spider Lily. It's so breathtakingly beautiful!


Spider lily fields...

By the way, there has been said that all the Lycorises in Japan have male origins and so they reproduce only through their roots, they don't bear fruit.

YES. If some cosplayers out there made this happen, they would be my favorites for ever and ever.

Yes! I thought it was just an artist's fantasy but they are for real!
