Photographer's Note

This shot is a closer look to one of the species of Fritillaria, called inverted tulip ( in Persian means Laleh-ye-vazhegon). It is also known as " Ashk-e-Maryam" (Tear of Mary) ; because of the dropping dews that sounds like drops of tear. This plant is native to Iran and reached Austria in 1576.
It grows in some mountain slopes located in center and west of Iran , usually in second month of the spring and is seen in different colours such as yellow, orange and brown.
