Elegant Cat's Ear

Dave Ostrom
The Elegant Cat's Ear is a special flower that is often missed as it is low to the ground but it is wonderful to see once it is found. It gets its name from the hairs on its petals but the deep purple also intrigues me. It has a single leaf that if one doesn't look closely is hard to associate with the flower. This example was found at a Palouse Land Trust Conservation Easement called Judy's Trail on the outskirts of Troy, Idaho. It was taken by Dave Ostrom on June 14th.
