All week I've been taking pictures of this little one, but I was never happy with the exposure. I'm still not thrilled, but at least now it looks like Starflower, Trientalis borealis, the species formerly known as T. americana. I wish I knew why there was a name change!

Seven petals is the most common configuration, but five or six does comes up. Just like the books say, I found this one with company in the shaded woods--they spread with underground rhizomes.

Here's a gang of grackles I found hanging out just before sunset.
