Only one

This evening I came across this strange looking wildflower. It’s the only one I’ve ever seen and there was only one in the place where it is growing. It’s fairly large for a wildflower (about 1.5 inches across).

Pinkfairies or Deerhorn or Ragged Robin ~ Clarkia pulchella ~ (I like “Ragged Robin”)

This isn’t a very good photo mostly because of the terrible light angle, but it serves to provide perspective: it was taken from the place where the little flower lives.
