If anyone could help me identify these two wildflowers it would be appreciated. Thank you.

They were growing in northern Virginia woodlands in late April, near a creek.

the top one are daffodils, not a native (at least to the u.s.) but was planted or is an escape from a planting.

Second one looks like that invasive Ranunculus ficaria plant.

Here is a link that might be useful: Link to details on Ranunculus ficaria

'Van Sion' daffodil and, yes, Ranunculus ficaria.

Now renamed Ficaria verna, I believe, in case you're Googling.
