Mimulus Ringens

Mimulus ringens, more commonly known as the Allegheny monkeyflower, is a wild flower native to eastern and central portions of North America. It is a member of the genus Mimiulus which includes a variety of different monkeyflowers and muskflowers. Mimulus ringens is found in a variety of different wetland habitats. I photographed this flower on the banks of the Snake River where it meets the St Croix River.
