A few wildflowers from Mt. Rainier National Park. Merten’s Bluebells (Mertensia paniculata) and a somewhat beleaguered Avalanche Lily (Erythronium montanum). A better version of this flower can be found in a previous post of mine. Next trip there will not be so rushed and I will likely have more of a chance to get the macro lens after these a bit more.

This little Gray Jay (Perisoreus canadensis) at first made me think he was a rare opportunity but quickly proved to be rather tame – and not shy about begging for a handout.
