A wonderful Blue Gentain getting cozy with an Orange Painted Brush up on a hillside in Rustlers Gulch. Crested Butte, CO.
Perched at the edge of a leaf and taking a break from their seemingly endless flight. Perhaps deciding which flower to visit next or just taking in the wonderful view. The wildflowers were thick along this on this stretch of trail so the choices were many for a butterfly that day.

Where wild flowers spent the summer dancing in the breeze, autumn says hello.

Time does fly.
While near the end of a recent hike, just tromping along which that feeling that being almost back at the car brings, we ran across this male Moose quietly munching away on the remaining summer greens. We had spent the day trying to take close-ups of the remaining summer wildflowers flowers so the 105 mm macro lens was on the camera. Good thing this guy was so close.
