Several more Red Poppies bloomed as well as some smaller Icelandic Poppies. The Rhododendron flowers are beginning to fad, with lots of pink petals on the ground. I don’t know the ID of the purple, blue, or yellow wildflowers. Any help would be appreciated. The only non-flower picture is one of a carpenter bee drilling a hole in my house.

I was about to leave for a hike in Rocky Mountain National Park and saw this brown bird with spots outside the Residence Inn in Boulder. My home away from home while working at SIRNA. I got a couple of pictures of the bird, but didn’t know what it was at the time. I finally figured out that it was a Northern Flicker. A woodpecker that feeds on the ground. In Rocky Mountain National Park I went for a hike in the Longs Peak section. A few images — a squirrel, a small white wildflower, and a purple crocus wildflower. Many more images for another day.
