Tiger, tiger burning bright....

This is the only kind of tiger you're likely to find in the forest around here, though cougars are regularly sighted on Vancouver Island. It's a Tiger Lily, Lilium columbianum. Although it's often seen in gardens it is a bona fide indigenous wild flower and the one pictured above is growing in Highrock Park.

A lovely example. I don't think I've ever seen them.
