Here are a couple from lower Ice Lake Basin. Upper Ice Lake Basin is pretty cool, but not much in the way of flowers. I also hiked up the the Highland Mary Lakes, there is a stretch that's just going nuts with flowers (that was on Friday), but none of the photos I took turned out (wildflower photos in bright sunlight just don't work).

I take it back - both of the photos in the previous posts are in sunlight and look fine. Maybe it's just mine that don't work....

looking at your photos i'd say to get much lower to the ground, changes everything. you should be at flower level, it pays to get dirty.

you have some great shots though too:-)
