Some pretty nice shots. This thread was a good idea!


Here's another one from the Fourth of July on the Pikes Peak foothills.

Love those butterfly shots. I love them all actually.

A few from the Rawah Wilderness this past weekend

Can someone tell me what these are called? They're very abundant in wet alpine areas but a little googling didn't produce the name.

llamaman - I think that is called a White Marsh Marigold.

Went to one of my favorite wildflower spots a couple od days ago and there was still 4ft snow drifts in the woods and barely a wildflower to be seen in the fields. That area is usually peak around July 4th. This was at around 10,500-11,000ft.
