Orange Hawkweed

I took this on a hike in New Hampshire. There are several of them near Lonesome Lake. It is supposed to be a New England wildflower that grows at least as far south as Connecticut so I’ve included it, but I haven’t seen it locally yet. Native to mountainous areas of Europe. Daisy Family.

Photographed by B on a recent hike in New Hampshire. I felt off wildflower duty since this is not really my turf. However, this flower is found in our area, so here it is. The leaves are in whorls, and the white petals are really the bracts, not petals, and the flowers are a cluster of small greenish flowers in the center. Will have bright red berries in late summer, good bird food.
