Good new series, May. I especially like the depth of shadow/form you created with this one.

Best regards,

Tamás, Hank and Gabor, thank you all so much for the nice comments! The Fritillarias are very impressing flowers and often seen in the farmer's gardens!

My best regards, May

Yes, you are right. It's really the same one. That's the first time that I saw such flower.

Huang Fang, Wikipedia says, it's native from Anatolia to the Himalayan foothills.

Now I understand, why they are mostly in farmer's garden. It's told, that they are against mice because of their unpleasant smell.

Greetings from Switzerland, May
