Hi Fernando, This is a beautiful shot, great detail and colour. I've never seen a red trillium only white. Janice/Canada

Hello Fernando! Wonderful shot of this beautiful red trillium. They are also called "stinking Benjamins" because of the bad odour. It attracts flies for early pollination. Great POV, and lovely how you have captured the twist in the petal, as well as the groups of threes. TFS! Well done!
