I am pretty certain it is a Wahlenbergia, possibly Wahlenbergia rivularis. It is a genus I greatly like. Some of the desert species that appear ofter rain give me goose-flesh! Nice shot!
Thanks Jon for your comment, I agree its probably Wahlenbergia, but I am not sure its W. rivularis. That has three prongs on the middle stem and this has two, a sort of aries look to it. Thanks for the interest though, appreciate it.
