A close relative of the Trout Lily is the White Fawn Lily(Erythronium albidum) or Dogtooth Violet. It looks just like the Trout Lily, but its tepals are white.

The intricate workings of nature have always been intriguing to me. Hopefully you will be lucky enough to witness an ant carrying its elaiosome this spring! I know I will be watching for them.
