Nope, but I can tell you it's an interesting shot! Maybe because it only has three petals- I've never seen a flower like that before! Good flash technique, too!

Confirming photolady's and slowpez' identification.

It ** is ** a Spiderwort. There are fields that are just loaded with them down by the rivers around here. They seem to run from bluish purple to true purple. It may have to do with acidity in the soil.
