Botany Photo of the Day, again!
Aug 29 ’07at the end of June: I completely forgot to note it here. I took a photo of Erythronium montanum at the top of Larch Mountain outside of Portland. It was a rainy day, which usually doesn't make for good hiking, but we were under a thick understory for most of the hike so it worked. There were vast numbers of these very delicate avalanche lilies waiting for us near the top of the mountain, all covered with droplets. They are quite charismatic. today, for a photo of Erigeron peregrinus ssp. callianthemus. I shot this one over this past weekend hiking up on Mt. Hood. It was a glorious day for a hike, with perfect weather and clear skies. More photos from this trip are in my Flickr stream.
As always, many thanks to Daniel Mosquin of the UBC Botanical Garden and his Botany Photo of the Day, which I really can't recommend enough. Every day you get a beautiful photo in your feed reader, along with some understanding of the natural world that surrounds us. It really is an amazing planet.
