A meadow on the east side of the Sandias, filled with late summer wildflowers.
Spike verbena growing wild in the Sandia mountains and a skipper butterfly (I’m not sure what kind of skipper it is).
Whipple’s penstemons backlit by the late afternoon sun, high in the Sandia mountains.
The plumes that give Apache Plume its name are silhouetted by the setting sun.
These butterflies were everywhere in the high Sandias the other day. They’re among my favorites.
