Fuzzy Purple Asters up high near tree line. It seems that when you ascend up towards the tundra the Asters become more fuzzy. A fur coat to protect against the chilly nights?

The butterflies like them as much as I do.

Photographed in August near tree-line in Central Colorado.

Peeking out.

A Wilson’s Snipe peeking out from the grass in which they were very well hidden.

We saw and waited for quite some time for this guy to move out from behind the grasses in which we could just barely see them moving around foraging.

This is the most we captured but sometimes just a peek is more than enough.
