Help with prairie flower please

I found this flowering plant in a reclaimed prairie area at Ramsey Lake State Park in Fayette County this morning. I was wondering if anyone could ID it for me. Thanks.

looks like a cranesbill, geranium family. i think Carolina Cranesbill, but the flowers aren't open yet. the clusters are rather attractive at this stage though...
