We left the house at 3:30 am to be high in the mountains to capture this sun rise! I am not a morning person but this beautiful shot was worth it. We saw moose, deer and hummingbirds in the early hours.
I have seen these little flowers in a blue color, because they grow in my flower bed. I spotted the purple ones and spent some type photographing them. On the mountainside we hiked, there was purple, white, and blue flowers among several other types and colors.
My friend spotted this little guy after I walked right passed it. We tried to move it out to take more pictures, unsuccessfully. It dropped to the ground and hid in the undergrowth.
