Chocolate Lily (Fritillaria biflora) is a species of plant nativ

Chocolate lily (Fritillaria biflora) is a species of plant native to California, and endemic to California. Fritillaria biflora is called "chocolate lily" because it resembles the color of chocolate. It should not be confused with Arthropodium strictum, which is also called "chocolate lily" but which resembles the scent of chocolate rather than the color. As seen on the Crespi Trail off Turri road, between Los Osos and Morro Bay, CA. Photo by Michael "Mike" L. Baird bairdphotos.com, Canon 5D w/ Canon EF 180mm f3.5L Macro USM AutoFocus Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras on Gitzo GT1540 6X Carbon Fiber Series 1 G-Lock Mountaineer Tripod.

Disclosure: Water drops added from a bottle of water - there has been no rain in a while, and any morning dew was long gone.
