One Shot Wednesday

When blossoms have turned to wilted petals and seed and fruit in the lowlands,  the subalpine environment at timberline is rich with blooms.  Paintbrush, lupine, sedums, buckwheat, and this flower, the Subalpine Mariposa Lily  (Calocortus subalpinus), color the slopes of the Cascades at timberline waiting for the ants, beetles, and butterflies to happen along during the brief season called summer.
