Glenn Neigenfind invited me along for some adventures on Thursday afternoon and evening. I mentioned that my mom likes wildflower pictures, so we stopped frequently to get photos. Here are the better ones. The one below was found at a lower elevation, perhaps 6000 feet above sea level.
It seemed to be “purple” day. Here’s another, also found at a lower elevation.
Higher up we encountered another purple set. I can’t quite tell if these are the same flower as above—I don’t think so.
The following is a sego lily. It’s an odd little thing. A stem grows from the ground with this flower being its sole occupant except for a long, thin leaf that’s not much bigger than the stem.
It’s wildflower season in Colorado. More to come!
I thought your camera did well with the Sego lily, it’s quite clear.
thank you. Mini
