~ Fritillaria ~

By KKmoments
A recent purchase being as i've had no success at growing these (yet) and been confined to barracks with a chest infection for the last few days so used the excuse and opportunity today to test drive my dad's new lens..... a close up of a Fritillaria plant or 'snake head' as its more commonly known... taken in natural light positioned below my lounge window against a black b/g.... not much done other than tinkered with framing.

Thanks for the clicks/comments on my last upload, can't believe its been over a week since I did anything....!!!! Hope you all had a great w/end and thank you for viewing.

That's a real beauty, Karen, and I like the little leaf curling over at the top. The colour, light and patterns are excellent, as is the centre poking through the petals.
