An autumn crocus and yellow leaves around: surely the signs of autumn!
I took the photo in Körösrév (Vadu Crişului in Romanian).
I would be pleased if you told me your opinion about the photo!

Crocus banaticus Gay. This is one of the most sought-after flowers of autumn. Native from northern Romania through the Balkans to SW Russia, its large flowers, blooming in September-November, are lilac to purple, the outer 3 segments about 1.5 times as large as the inner 3. The stigmata, also lilac to purple, are finely divided. Our plants descend from corms collected in 1973 by Milan Prášil in NW Romania, in oak forest at about 700 m (2100') and grown on from seed. Height 10-20 cm (4-8"). Zone 4. Award of Garden Merit (Royal Horticultural Society) 1993.

very nice, but this is a Crocus and not a Colchicum (look at the 3 yellow anthers that are typical for this genus). It will be interesting to know which species is it, it has 3 very small inner petals which is unusual. greetings, Ori

Hi Marton,
I agree with both Ori and Dejan! This is a Crocus banaticus (=Crocus iridiflorus).
The foto is very nice! Good colors and sharpness!

Hi Marton,

Amazing shot, beautiful light and colors.

Szia Marci!
Gyönyörű őszi sáfrány, a legjobb nézetből lekapva, szép meleg színű környezettel. A mélységélesség is jó, a keret is - profi növényfotó. Grat és üdv Laci

Wow, olyan mintha élőben látnám!! A fény-árnyék hihetetlenül tökéletesen jön vissza, nem könnyű a csillogás jelenségét fotón így visszaadni. Nem vagyok nagy "virágos" de ez nem semmi!
