[FFmpeg-user] Burn Frame Number/Time Code onto Image Sequence

I am trying to burn at least the frame number on an exported image sequence
and cannot quite figure it out.

The closest I have come in my yahoo searching is
ffmpeg -i D:/imagesequence/background.jpg -vf
"movie='D\:/imagesequence/dpx/thumbnail.jpg' [watermark]; [in][watermark]
\:':x=(w)/1.2:y=(h)-25[out]" D:/imagesequence/dpx/final_with_text_mod_04.jpg

But even with this example it does not work.

This makes no sense to me:
'Frame \:':x=(w)/1.2:y=(h)-25[out]

Can some explain to me how this could burn frame number into my exported
