I found this trillium in my woods close to red trilliums. It is not a painted or a nodding. Has anyone else had one of these?

really a wonderfully colored flower. a unique beauty. good sharpness. I feel you must have given some additional lighting on the flower to make it more appealing. Or you must have avoided that distracting background by zooming a little bit. Good sharpness and balance.

Hi Julia,
I am not much of flower guy but I did find something. My big book of Wildflowers indicates that Bent Trillium (Trillium flexipes) often hybridizes with Red Trillum. That could explain why there are red veins in the petals. Its real pretty you may have found something quite unique. Thank you very much, I just learned something today.
Have a great weekend.
Denis.

Hello Julia! Wow! This is something rare indeed! TFS! Great POV.
