Giant White Fawn Lily (Erythronium oregonum)

Here's another old friend on the roll call of spring flowers, the Giant White Fawn Lily (Erythronium oregonum). I'm not too sure why it's called "Giant" since I've never seen any that were very big. It's considerably smaller than a Tiger Lily, for instance. In any case I always like to see these graceful blooms amongst the rocks and mosses of our local parks.

"Oregonum"....I wonder if that means there are a lot of them in Oregon?

Great photo. You always seem to take really great flower shots.
