There are a number of new wildflowers showing up in my backyard. I am not sure of the identification of the yellow, orange, and blue ones. Any help with the ID is appreciated. They could be native weeds, or perennial ones from the wildflower mix that I planted last year. The flowers on the rhododendrons are also starting to bloom. Because of the deer, my rhododendron learned to grow tall — the only leaves and flowers are above where the deer could nibble last winter. I hope to see and photograph some clearwing hummingbird moths on the rhododendrons again this year.
Gone to See Patagonia 2010/2011. Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 9: Hosteria El Pilar and Perito Moreno Glacier.
I woke up to more orange clouds at dawn. This time they covered Mount Fitzroy, but you could see the glacier. Before we left Hosteria El Pilar near El Chalten I took some pictures of the lupines in bloom. We then headed into Los Glaciares National Park. where I took a panorama image of Perito Moreno Glacier. As with the previous panorama images, these are best viewed in full screen mode.
Individual images from the slide-show can be viewed here.
