Blue-eyed Grass - Prairie Wildflower

Early morning, and in the grass along the path I saw blue flowers — Blue-eyed Grass. And I wondered at the eyes of the flowers, bright yellow rimmed with magenta, but perhaps Yellow-eyed-Blue-eyed Grass would be too long a name...

I couldn't find these bright blue, star-shaped flowers later in the day. Is this prairie plant a morning bloomer, or did someone walk across the sodden grass and step on it?

Blue-eyed Grass may look like it has six petals  — but three of these are really sepals...
