Orange Sovereign & Red Lion

I started to collect amaryllis bulbs about a year ago but it was hard to get different varieties other than reds. Friends from the AmarrylisHippeastrum forum on GW have kindly sent me seedlings and seeds to increase my collection. This holiday season I forced these two bulbs to bloom. I hope my other bulbs will follow soon.
A while back I had an entry about the Orange Sovereign bulb I got from Edna. Today, my second bulb - Red Lion - has sent out its first bloom. The color is rather deep red and when placed beside the OS, you can clearly see the difference!
Here're my two beauties.
