What is species is this plant?

Found in the Carden limestone plains of Cameron Ranch (near Orillia, Ontario, Canada) on September 9th, 2017.

It is located in an old bog that seems to have sphagnum peat moss (to my untrained eye).

It's an odd angle, but I think the plant/flower is an Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja coccinea). It is found in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Nova Scotia.
