August 4, 2011
The deep reds of the Wyoming state flower.  The Indian Paintbrush.  The red being only the coloration of its leaves like a poinsetta.  The flower is only an inconspicuous green buried in all that red.  This is a parasitic plant deriving its nutrients off a host plant.  Coming in many variations of color from mountains to plains-it is spectacularly beautiful.

  1. Another one of your fabulous photos I'd love to paint a watercolor of someday. I love the weathered logs. Something about the grey and pink that go so well.
