Name this Flower: Ragged Robin!

[Thanks to Dan Huber who came through almost instantly with the ID!]

Though I have searched my references and the internet I have not been able to identify this flower, two isolated clumps of which were growing in fairly deep  forest along a path at Laudholm Farms in Wells Maine. It reminds me of a lot of different flowers but is not them. 🙂 The deeply forked petal structure and the color should be distinctive. ?? I am certain when someone names it I am going to go “Of course!”

Another view. This time hit by a shaft of sun.

Canon SX20IS. Both at 28mm and Super-macro. F2.8 @ ISO 100. The shade shot at 1/160th and the sun shot at 1/400th. Programmed auto.

Similar processing in Lightroom. Fill Light, Blackpont right, added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset. The shade shot required auto white balance correction in Lightroom to warm the overly blue tone. It was also cropped slightly for composition.

From Laudholm Farm.
