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 ubspecies have been named. The plant is stem-rooting, growing between 1 m and 2 m tall. The flower colour is typically a pink-purple or orange 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.
The name Turk's cap lily, also applied to a number of other species, comes from the characteristic reflexed shape of one of the petals.

*From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I took this photo in Bogazova Village, near Inegol district. It is native to Turkiye, but not to Bursa. It grows normally in North-eastern Anatolia mountains. Some people that have imigrated from there, they have taken this wild plants with their and cultivate it near their new houses. This Zambak (lily) has came this way here and after for years this becames be native here.

Dear Fevzu, this is wonderful picture and beautiful lily. But I'm afraid it is not L. martagon, but rather a cultivated variety. Ori

Merhaba Fevzi Bey,
Renkler ve netlik çok iyi. Verdiğiniz bilgilerde sağlam.
Emekleriniz için Çok teşekkür ederiz.

This is really nicely exposed considering that your subject had the bright sky behind it. sharpness is excellent. Be careful with sharpening...try to avoid halos along the higher contrast edges.

Hello Fevzi,
I think I've seen these wild in Slovenia. I also have one in my garden that is just about to flower. Your capture is really beautiful, well composed, very sharp, fine colours and against a lovely blue sky. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla
