Mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum)

The Mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum). I saw these umbrella-shaped leaves peaking up from the woodland floor. They look like umbrella for fairies and woodland sprites.

The clear white bloom will have 6-9 waxy petals. The blooms are not on top of the leaves but hidden underneath. I usually have to crawl on my belly to take a snapshot of the pretty round flower.
