[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the columbine flower. (It is the state flower of Colorado, after which Columbie school was named). It likes shady places and blooms mostly in July. Traditionally, the colors are blue and white, but new variants have been introduced. This was taken in Waterton National Park Canada.

A straightforward shot on my HP720 P&S. For PP, I added a bit more contrasat and color saturation (both of which are weak on the HP).

Let me fill up some more info: the plant is Aquilegia chrysantha, family Ranunculaceae. I met it several times in Arizona.
Beautiful shot. (I love flowers)
