Trout Lily

By taggart  
Trout Lily
aka Dog-toothed Violet
Erythronium americanum

Blooming in our woodlands NOW! hundreds of them!

Note: the leaves bear a resemblance to trout when seen swimming --- the corms bear a resemblance to the canine tooth.
Also note: due to their low growing habit, they are difficult to capture as a clear shot with no distractions!

I've never seen a trout swimming, so see no resemblance with the leaves, but would comment that isn't it typical that the most photogenic flowers are always the most difficult to get a good shot of.
Nice capture
