[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Erythronium dens-canis (common name Dog's tooth violet or Dogtooth violet) is a small herbaceous flowering plant in the Liliaceae, native to Europe, where it is the only naturally occurring species.

It produces a solitary white, pink or lilac flower at the beginning of spring. The petals (growing to approx. 3 cm) are reflexed at the top and are yellow tinted at the base. The brown spotted leaves are ovate to lanceolate and grow in pairs. The cormous white rootstocks are oblong and resemble a dog's tooth in appearance; hence the name.
In contrast to most plants with the common name "violet", E. dens-canis is not in genus Viola. In areas of North America, several other Erythronium species (e.g. Erythronium americanum) are referred to locally as Dogtooth violet.

Hi Bartha.
I welcome touching subject and nice picture a lot. Amazing combination of cold snow and alive flower. Diagonal composition of the image as well as framing of the scene are excellent for my taste. Exposure of the image is very delicate too. My kind regards and TFS.
