Calochortus tiburonensis

Calochortus tiburonensis – Tiburon Mariposa.  Ring Mountain – Marin County, 16 May 2016.

C. tiburonensis is endemic to Ring Mountain and I believe I read it is one reason this prime piece of “real estate” was never developed.  The flower blends in to its environment so well that one second I would see several and the next second my eyes would completely lose sight of them.  I was quite taken by its colors and beauty.
