Is this an orchid?

I know these pictures aren't in very good focus, but I was wondering if anyone could help me identify this wildflower. It was found in the woods in Southeast Missouri.

Replied that this is likely a small Galearis spectabilis in another forum.

Thank you, lycopus, that looks like it. After reading up on it, it sounds like we were lucky to see one in our area as they are fairly rare here.
