Pulsatilla occidentalis (White Pasqueflower)

This isn't the flower - it's the seed stage of Western Anemone - Anemone occidentalis. It was surprisingly hard to find in the guide books, but it is quite common at Manning Park.

Nice shot! I was at the Alpine Meadows yesterday afternoon ( 15 Aug 2010 ) and the anemone was one of the very few plants still worth photographing...alas I was too late in the season for everything else....some wilting paintbrush and a couple of other flowers could be seen. I checked out your page via Google in the morning before driving to Manning, so I owe you a big thank you for adding to my knowledge of the flowers one can expect to see at Alpine Meadows; provided one gets there at the right time!!
