Turning aspens along Ellis Trail last weekend. I love the way their leaves shimmer and dance.
I’d never even heard of an American Snout until a few weeks ago. Days after I first saw a picture of one, I got a chance to take my own photo. Its snout is quite charming.
Sunflowers and coneflowers fill a meadow in the Sandia mountains.
Wild coral bells growing from granite with lichens, high in the Sandias.
Well, it’s just about the wettest summer I can ever remember here in the Albuquerque area, and the wildflowers and butterflies are loving it. So am I, for that matter! I happened upon a Wiedemeyer’s Admiral last week with its wings closed and jumped at the chance to get a photo. (The last time I had the opportunity was about six years ago.)
