This tiny little flower (about 3/4 inch diameter) belongs to a Three-Leaf Goldthread (Coptis trifolia), a member of the Buttercup family. The flowers are on a long thin stem rising out of basal leaves (see next photo).
Another view of the plant that shows the flowers in relationship with the basal leaves consisting of 3 leaflets.
