Lilium martagon (Martagon or Turk's cap lily) is a species of lily. It has a widespread native region extending from central Europe east through northern Asia to Mongolia and Korea. Several subspecies have been named. The plant is stem-rooting, growing between 1 m and 2 m tall. The flower colour is typically a pink-purple, with dark spots, but is quite variable, extending from near white to near black. The flowers are scented. Numerous flowers are borne on a plant, and up to 50 can be found on vigorous plants.

bonjour Emmanuel,
et voilà une composition florale de grande qualité, aussi doué dans ce domaine que pour les bestioles. Superbe couleur, clareté saisissante.


Hi Emmanuel,
I love your lily, wonderful colours and excellent sharpness. I also had one here some weeks ago, captured in Italy.
Thanks for sharing yours, bye and greetings

Bonsoir Emmanuel,
Très bonne photo avec une profondeur de champ impressionante, tout y est, couleurs, exposition et composition parfaite, ca c'est de la photo !!!

Hello Emmanuel,
these Turk's cap lily blossoms stick out so very clearly and three-dimensionally in very true colours. They are one of my favorite flowers, and I am always fascinated by their fleshy petals and delicious colours. You have captured and presented them so very well.
Thank you! My best regards,

Très belle photo de Lys Martagon, et c pas simple à faire ;=)
