Fritillaria atropurpurea

Spotted Mountain Bells/Chocolate Checkered Lily

This species seems to have many common names upon researching it on the web

These were photographed in Josephine County, O'Brien, Oregon in a wooded meadow by a stream. There were just a few last year, but this year are here in abundance. They are hard to see when not in the sunlight directly as you can see. I loved taking the shots this year with the sun shining through them so one can see all the colors and how beautiful they are.
