Anagallis arvensis arvensis
Small but vivid orange flowers with pink at the base of each petal. The leaves had black spots on the undersides. I saw many of these during my trip especially along trails, but I mostly saw orange to reddish ones like this. I may have seen some Anagallis arvensis carnea, but I'm not positive since I did not get any photos of those.
