    Walking in the wetlands preserve today in Northeast Indiana I took pictures of these two flowers. I can't identify them. The flowers are quite small. Can anyone tell me what they are? Thanks!

    Cardamine sp, I'd guess Cardamine laciniata.

    1 - something from the Carrot family.

    To clarify, I think the second one looks like Cardamine... not sure what species. I agree with you on the first one.

    If the leaves at the top of the second picture are the same as that of the white flower in the first, then possibly Cicuta and extreme handling precautions should be taken.

    Curious, why? Cicuta is only poisonous if eaten, just touching it won't hurt. And since it's in a nature reserve, eating it is presumably prohibited by the reserve protection regulations.
