Wild tulips (having a party). Sierra de La Cabrera, June 2013

Wild tulips (having a party).  Sierra de La Cabrera, June 2013
They only open at the height of the strongest sun and when the temperature gets really hot, sometimes for an hour or so only. I have seen them closed on a sunny and warm day - it just wasn't quite hot enough. This is not photoshopped or edited in any major way. The tulip colours and the grey of the degraded granite were as seen.

Энди! На сайте 23 снова исчезли справа от снимков звёздочки фаворитов - я даже не могу отметить твои фото. К тому же сайт забодал меня картинками к комментариям. Я их сквозь лупу не могу разобрать... Муть какая-то. Полный маразм.

Well, I did, Juliann but I thought they could only be found in Turkey and Central Asia, for some reason!
But they really are stunning! Much smaller than most cultivated varieties. I really look forward to seeing them each June on my mountain walks.
Have a good week. Best wishes, Andy

Thank you, Campayo!
I saw them closed in May and June and didn't think they opened much, if at all. Then one day (a day I had started later than usual so the sun was higher), I saw them at 3:00 on a very hot day with the sun at its highest! And the rocky mountainside was covered with them all open! On other occasions I had always passed by here at about 11 or 12; much too early!
All best wishes. Andy

Es gibt wunderbare Wildtulpenarten. Ich lernte mit Herrn Dr. Boris Winterholler (ehem. Direktor des Bot. Gartens in Almaty / Kasachstan) einen Botaniker kennen, der die Wildtulpen in den kaukasischen Sowjetrepubliken erforscht hat. Er stellte wahre Tulpenschätze vor.
Andy, Dein hier gezeigtes Foto ist wunderbar. Unglaublich, was so karger Boden hervorbringen kann.

Totally fabulous!! I've never seen tulips like this, aren't they unusual and glorious?! Thanks too for pointing out that you didn't alter the colors...it really does look like the background is muted to help the flowers pop out even more. How cool that the setting is natural! Really pretty flowers... and I love the title too! :)

They are enough to make me travel to these mountains in late May, early June in the rare hope of seeing them. Success rate? Twice in 12 attempts over 8 years!

But glad to hear they still do grow there. Or at least did in 2013.

And well worth to try find them. Exceptionally beautiful flowers.

Well, I often see them in their unopened state (still beautiful in their own little way!) but the thrill is seeing them fully opened and lapping up the sun at it's highest and strongest in about mid June!
