Hoping I can get an ID, but no flower on this one. Growing under willows in a sandbar on the side facing away from the river. Leaf shape was interesting all the way up the stalk, shaped like sheep sorrel.

Little guy came down from an Alder tree above Mill Creek (still flowing) then walked across the rocks to greener plants and water's edge. Nearby a swallowtail butterfly was on the rocks almost dead.
