wildflowers on the bald man's head

Tolmie's pussy ears (Calochortus tolmiei)

After a day of no luck finding a variety of flowers on Mary's Peak, I headed out to Bald Hill in town to try my luck at spotting any at lower elevations. I actually did have a little more success here...and I got to try out my macro lens a bit! 

oregon fawn lily (Erythronium oregonum)

littleleaf montia (Montia parvifolia)...i think

checkered lily (Fritillaria affinis)

I returned from the hike to find a pleasant surprise-- my Venus fly trap had finally bloomed! He's been trying to get these blossoms out for ~2 months now.
