Butterflies only come out on sunny days so I didn’t see many. Wildflowers were also spotty but I did manage to get some photos of both. I’ll start with the butterflies and bugs and follow up with Wildflowers.

Pinesap is a Mycotrophic Wildflowers meaning it gets its nutrients from a host (pine trees) but it’s a healthy relationship 🙂
Lockett Meadow Wildflowers (Indian Paintbrush, Fleabane, Lupine and Purple Loco Weed) I photogragraphed this scene from under an umbrella 🙂

Old Cattle Tank near Aspen Corner surrounded by Coreopsis and other Wildflowers. A great place for Butterflies, bugs and Dragonflies. Not this time, though.
Aspen Face – Of course I had to include one more 🙂
Rain pelting down on my SUV. Shot through my RV window.
