Trillium cuneatum (1,2) popular with all the young flies these days.
Bluets (3) now with more blue!
Formica pergandei (4) a slave making species of other Formica species.

Your Trilliums are just awesome!
What is it that your ant is traveling upon so fuzzy?

MrILoveTheAnts,

Your Trillium cuneatum photos are cool. I especially like the unique angle of the first one...kind of like a bug's eye view.

I took this at a park I used to frequent in Western PA. They are about a week or so ahead of us, I think.

I grew up calling it dogtooth's violet--my one sister's favorite. Jeff calls it fawn lily...he seems to have picked that over the other common name trout lily. I believe the botanical name is (Erythronium americanum)...although I remembered the Ery-- I had to do a search to find the full name.
