This is a Geranium pratense, or Meadow Cranesbill according to Wikipedia. It's confusing because "geranium" is also the common name of a very different looking flower. I just thought it was a beautiful blue flower and I wanted to take its picture.
It's a really vivid blue and then those purple streaks make it so unusual.

I love this color of blue. It really "pops" against that dark green background. Beautiful!

These are proper geraniums and lovely flowers captured well. The others that everyone calls geraniums are actually pelargoniums. How they came to steal the other name escapes me:)

@Debi: Thanks Debi! Debi is my daughter and the reason I'm up early so many mornings. We meet for coffee nearly every morning at 5:30. What a neat way to start the day.
Lovely color and detail, plus a nice job of subduing the backgrouns while keeping it interesting.
