    Here are three wild flowers I shot on the way up to Lake Twentytwo this week. I have no idea what they are. My wife thought the first was some type of honeysuckle but I haven't been able to verify that. I got buzzed by a hummingbird while shooting it. The bird flew close to me and then flew off about 10 feet and looked at me with what I interpeted to be disgust that I was keeping him\her from feeding. Any help identifying these plants will be appreciated.

    Second one looks like a dogwood of some type, maybe pacific dogwood?

    It does look like a dogwood flower. However, these were on a very low ground cover type plant so I don't think that is what it is. The plants I saw were no bigger than 6 inches tall.

    I was looking through an audobon book yesterday and couldn't find it. The first one is a Crimson Columbine rather than a Western Columbine. Your ID put me on the right track however!
