Requesting to please ID these flowers captured in Chicago, USA in May 2013.

It is a Camassia sp. [Asparagaceae].

Thank you … for the lead…

It seems to be Camassia leichtlinii…Kindly validate.

I’m not sure about the species.

Only 2 sp.,  Camassia scilloides (Raf.) Cory and Camassia angusta (Engelm. & A.Gray) Blank. are listed in Illinois and looks the later one is matching!
