Fritillaria Meleagris 'Checkered Lily' (close-up) (from my garden, May 4, 2014). This fritillaria has slender, silvery-green foliage and has nodding, bell-shaped, checkered flowers. These are also called Guinea Hen flowers because the flower markings are much like the feather patterns on some breeds of guinea fowl.

It's so pretty! Thank you for posting this picture. I think I saw a flower like this in my aunt's garden, but I'm not sure.
