Great Burnet With Butterfly
The flower is quite striking. The butterfly was a nice touch. I thought this was a European Skipper at the time, but it quite clearly isn't.
Species: Sanguisorba officinalis (Great Burnet, official burnet), Lycaena mariposa (Mariposa Copper)

Canadian Dogwood
Or Cornus canadensis to closer friends. The white parts (pedals to those not in the know) are actually bracts modified leaves. The flowers are the tiny green things in the very center that I didn't get close enough to see.
Species: Cornus canadensis (Canadian Dogwood, Canadian bunchberry)

Marsh Marigolds In Grasses
I believe this is Marsh Marigold - Caltha biflora. This plant seems to love the water - I only found it in very boggy bits where snow pack or a small stream kept the ground saturated.
Species: Caltha leptosepala (White Marsh Marigold)

Marigold In Moss
It amazes me that this same species can be found in so many different places - how could this plant get from one mountain to another, let alone from the mainland to Vancouver Island.
Species: Caltha leptosepala (White Marsh Marigold)
