Thank you, Chris.

Thanks, HBG. Not sure how little you'd consider them, they stood about 2 feet tall :)

Yes the Showy is quite tall, but the flower portion is about one third smaller than the Yellow version.

Thanks. I probably shouldn't show you the wide shot I took or you'll have a heart attack. In this small bit of woods there was something like a hundred flowers in groups of 5, 10, and 20. :)
