Wildflowers, part 3: the Vedauwoo edition

June 30, 2010

There’s no other way for me to put it. Vedauwoo had an embarrassment of wildflowers a week and a half ago.

I don’t currently have the time to look up all these flowers. I hope to do it by and by. But I had to at least post the pictures, so you folks would know what’s out there while the gettin’s still good.

A note: the air’s a bit thinner at 8,000 feet. Husband and I found that when we’d stand up after being crouched for awhile, looking at a flower or insect (or both), we’d get a bit light-headed. No worries. Just so you know what to expect.

In case you were looking for my other wildflower photos, look here and here.

This plant would be perfect to anthropomorphize. Shall we name her Audrey?

I liked this flower so much, I'm going to post another angle.

See? Purple!

I think I saw this one on a noxious weed list.

A close relative? Noxious too, I wonder?

And now, being a good entomologist’s wife, a few photos of flowers with insects.

It's not a bee. It's a bee-tle.

There's the bee!

Beautiful, metallic green bee. Incidentally, the dark wood at left is beaver-chewed. We found a beaver pond along one trail.

And, some just-insect pictures. We saw many butterflies, but not many of them were visiting flowers. The preferred the rocks and mud puddles instead that day.
