Flowers and Bugs

The flowers are really starting to pop on the tundra. So are the mosquitoes and flies. I know a few readers of this blog (if you are still reading) are flower enthusiasts, so here are a few tundra flowers for your viewing enjoyment. If you know anything about any of these flowers, I'd love to hear about em.
Lousewart of some kind
Lavender-colored Flower
Light Purpleish Flowers
Annnnnnd the White Flower
Mosquitoes really hatched today. They weren't vicious yet, but I saw some planning their attack and sharpening their proboscis. We are outnumbered....

  1. Plants cannot move from one location to another, thus many flowers have evolved to attract animals to transfer pollen between individuals in dispersed populations. Flowers that are insect-pollinated are called entomophilous; literally "insect-loving" in Greek. They can be highly modified along with the pollinating insects by co-evolution. Flowers commonly have glands called nectaries on various parts that attract animals looking for nutritious nectar
