Snake's head Fritillary by Barrie Woodward

A solitary snake’s head fritillary (Fritillaria Meleagris) raises its head above the dewy grass on a clear April morning. Not often in the North West of England, do you also get the benefit of a clear blue sky in April. Hopefully it will be back in the spring.

Lancashire, NW England

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    Wow! I’ve only seen these in gardens. I’ve always called it a checkerboard flower in my head. Wonderful find!

  • I believe one of their many names is the checkered daffodil.
