Spelling is correct, A Snakeshead Frittilary (fritillaria meleagris).

Very nice capture.

A beautiful image with lovely detail.

Great work- but I think it's fritillaria ( Snake's head) !!!
Never mind the spelling- it's a wonderful shot.
Beautiful image

Single t, double l. Snake's Head Fritillary, one of the only flowers I recognise Smile Good use of the shape with bloom and leaf on opposite sides, and I like the vignette.

And they're only just starting to come up in our garden. Beautiful image of a very strange, slightly eerie flower.

A very attractive presentation Chris. We have a bunch or these frillittaries come up every year, only this year we have white one amongst them.
These were Rene Macintosh's favourite flower; mine too.
