Upside Down Umbrellas

I'm not sure what these purple flowers are called. Anyone know? Update: Bill has informed me these are shooting stars. This photo is also from Rock Creek in the Sierras (like the last one I posted). I took this while lying down, with the camera about a foot above the ground to isolate these two particular flowers from the rest that were in the field.
