[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My TN friend , today another of Slovenian
protected flowers.
This photo is from Ljubljanas moor.

Checkered lilies are somewhat dainty in appearance, featuring solitary drooping, 2" long, bell-shaped flowers which are checkered and veined with reddish-brown, purple, white and gray atop slender stems. Also commonly called guinea-hen flower because of the resemblance of the mottled flower color to a guinea hen. In the right environment, it will live long and naturalize well.
Common Name: Fritillaria
Botanical Name: Fritillaria meleagris
Color: Purple/White
Foliage Color: Green
Bloom Time: March/May

Hi Marjan,
Excellent shot on this very unique looking lily. This one is new to me. Beautiful subtle colors, and sharp detail. Amazing pattern and detail in the flower. Well done!

Hi Marjan,

So nice photo, unusual colours, well done close-up!
TFS and best wishes,

Hi, Marjan!
I thoght that chekered things can be found only in your neigbours - the Croatians;) But you show us that checkers patterns (as well as sea;) is not their patent, is it? Of course, that's a Balkan joke... Your photo is very interesting and beautifull. The focus and colors are true and vivid. I apply a small workshop of this splendid photo.

very nice and sharp, much better than my picture of the same flwoer with flash. thanks, Ori

A great close-up of this beautiful Fritillary, maybe you've cut it a bit too close at the bottom but it is still very nice!
TFS, Ulla
