[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another beautiful flower from Turkish flora, which contains more than 10.000 plant species, is Lilium monadelphum var. armenum - Sarıçiçekli Zambak, Zigana Zambağı [TR], The Caucasian Lily [EN] (MONOCOTYLEDONES: LILIACEAE).
This yellow flowered perennial plant ranges in Northeastern Turkiye and the Caucasus. It has been recorded from Ardahan, Erzurum, Ordu, Rize, and Trabzon provinces.
Another variete, Lilium monadelphum var. szovitsianum is found in Artvin Province in Turkiye and the Caucasus and Crimea.

It can arrive to 130 cm in lenght, onion (root) is 4-8 cm in diameter, leaves are arranged in spiral sequence, medium leaves are large or thin lanceolate. Flowers are pale yellow or sulfur-yellow and usually mottled with chocolate color.
The plant grows usually on edges of Fagus and Picea forests, Rhododendron bushes, lake edges, and in acidic soil.

The shot was taken in altitude of c. 2400 m in Soğanlı Mountains between Trabzon and Bayburt provinces, by Canon 600 mm on hand. I hope you will like it. Alternative cropped version is seen on Workshop.

Dedication to my son, İbrahim Göktuğ who was born on today 11 years ago.

I am graeteful to Biol. Serdar ASLAN (myosotis) who kindly confirmed identification by me.

Hi Ahmet,

How beautiful! Turkey really is a wonderland with the marvelous birds and flowers. I see how much I missed - I have only been to Ephesus. These flowers are magnificent - the colors, shape, details of the petals and leaves are wonderful. Background and composition are stunning. A very Happy Birthday to Ibrahim.
