I saw this flower while in Oregon last year. The petals were transparent when wet, like Diphylleia grayi, but looks a lot more like Tradescantia fluminensis, though I'm not 100% on it being the latter.

The picture attached is the only one I took. Any help with identification would be appreciated. Thank you!

Looks like a Trillium that is almost done blooming, the petals get transparent at the end of spring/beginning of summer. Probably Trillium ovatum.
