Sure thing! I was hoping to go this Friday afternoon, but got roped into a meeting that killed those plans. Oh well, probably would have had difficulty finding an open seam with it being a holiday weekend. I will just wait a week for the crowds to maybe slow down.

BTW, I carry my D90 with 18-50mm f/2.8 lens in a roll-top pack by SealLine. When I had my D40 and 18-55 it would actually all fit inside my Fishpond Dragonfly. Now I just sling it over my shoulder. Here is a link to the pack I use:

Beautiful pictures.... we've all seen enough fish and they all look the same.
I believe they are, however they are a little different from the one's I usually see in the park. They are usually smaller, and the petals overlap each other. On these the petals do not overlap and it has a little black center. Maybe just a different species of trillium. Below is a pic of what I am more familiar with:
