Never seen a purple trilium before, just the regular white kind, love all the flower shots, it's easy to get lost in the peaks but I appreciate wildflowers too. Very nice photography.

Re: Wow

Thanks Scott. Our western trilliums are fairly boring compared to those in much of the rest of the country.

Re: Bellissima!!!

Well, I don't know what that means, but I sense I should say thank you.

nice pic

I´ve seen these before but this is a lovely picture. I especially like the way the petals curve a little at the tip.
