Pink flowers - Rosa carolina

This is a type of wild rose bush I spotted on one of my walks through the woods. The flowers reminded me of those I saw on the brambles, but the petals are a bit different, so I would like some help with the ID.


Loved the little buds in this bush, which is why this shot is not focused on an individual flower.


A big thanks to Nuytsia@Tas for the partial ID (Rosa), followed by verification by NatureNM: Rosa carolina - you guys are awesome!


For the ID Please group: Location is in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - the terrain is best described as rolling wooded hills.
