Just when I thought I was impressed.


I went back up to take more shots.

I had mentioned on the wildflower page that I had a difficult time photographing the shooting star (Dodecatheon pulchellum). I finally got back up on the mountian to take a few more photos – and like all of wildlife – it once again stunned me.


Check out what these little flowers do….


The petals actually open up (maybe a nice invite to a bumblebee perhaps?)

It seems the lesson of the last couple of days? Even little things can surprise you. It is also rumored that the Indian’s used it for medicinal purposes.

    You certainly figured out how to photograph them! Those are beautiful! That’s a flower you just have to see to believe.

    I have a few more wildflower photos I’ll post a little later, but I’m not certain what a couple of them are.

  2. I can understand that – seems I’m learning all the time between the birds and the flowers. I can’t wait to see your photos I’d love to see them!

  3. Great shooting stars! I don’t think I’ve ever seen one flared out like your last photo – very cool. Shooting stars look pretty interesting when gone to seed too: see here

  4. wow that is cool Paul – capturing a seed that small had to be anything but a small feat. I loved the colors in it! (Now that’s going to get me back up on the mountain to view it – this should make my pups pretty dang happy!) Thanks for visiting and thanks for sharing your photos they were lovely!
