Still Friday where I am!
Gorgeous set, I think some deserved an upload in their own right. Love that you show the actual habitat too.

No wonder I never see any of these beauties here, Ed, you're keeping them all around the Cheltenham area for yourself Smile A wonderful set, with the lead being my favourite. Carol

This is a great series. If I had to choose I would go for V12 with the head so pin sharp and detailed.

Everybody is choosing different favourites which means, they're all appealing.
I particularly like V7 and V11. Excellent results of your earnest searches.

A frightfully good set of frisky fritillaria for Friday, Ed my friend, it's frilling to see so many. No frippery here, nothing frivolous, just fine images.
