|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I've looked and looked and can't come up with an Identification in any of my books, or online to this flower. If anyone can help please do, I'd be grateful. I found it in the Oneota Gorge on the way to Triple Falls in the Columbia River Gorge, on the Oregon side. |
As usual I had a hard time getting a focused shot on the flowers, I took several photos with all the background in focus and the flowers fuzzy, I think I finally got one with the petals in focus though.

Sorry but no ID
Really difficult shot but you did well.
I have the same problem shoting flowers such as this.
When the air play with the leaves its very difficult to shot without flash and tripod.But I try again and again
These are Oaks Toothwort.
Oaks Toothwort - Cardamine pulcherrima var. pulcherrima. They bloom March to June, flowers are about 1.3 cm (1/2") across in loose clusters and have 4 pale pink/lavendar petals with veined lines. Their range is West of the Cascade mountains in shady woods and in the Columbia River Gorge. The common name "oaks" refers to this species' preferred habitat under the Garry Oak (Quercus garryana) trees.
I have a couple of photos of them too:
