Hi Marjan,
that's a beautiful flower, I've never seen such a one. Wonderful colour and form, thanks.

is a nice flower.
but this is not Cyclamen purpurascens
you can see that plant at http://www.hlasek.com/cyclamen_purpurascens_8247.html

the correct ID is Erythronium dens-canis (Liliaceae Family). this species can be seen in one of my earlier post (with spring flower, a composition).

my personal impresion is that is to out of focus.

if you read carefully your post you will see thah cyclamen flowers frim june to september (and you have made this photo in april).

Hi Marjan,
interesting picture. For the ID, I definitely agree with Cosmin. The flower you present looks like

Erythronium dens-canis, syn. Erythronium maculatum,
Hundszahn, Dog's Tooth Violet

Good to see your picture, anyway. That flower does not grow in the area of Vienna. I have seen it a few years ago in late March in the hills of Styria near Graz, but this year I thought I missed it. There seems to be a good chance that with the late spring of this year they are still around.
Thank you! Best regards,

Hi Marjan,
I'm not a specialist on plants, but I like the shape and the colours of this flower. In Holland I've never seen them. I agree that it is a bit out of focus but nevertheless a good shot.
Regards, Ruud
