Wildflower Field notes: American Pasque Flowers bloom during early spring. Once the sun begins to shine strongly on the flowers they tend to close for the day. I just missed getting a picture of this four headed clump while the flowers were open. 

American Pasque Flowers can be found in nearly any sunny location from the plains to the alpine tundra.
