Slowly the remaining wildflowers are moving aside as we inch closer toward fall. We're still a few weeks away from the golden colour of larch trees, but some of the shrubs are already showing fall colours. One of the wildflower still showing its colour is the paintbrush.
Another wildflower beauty that's worth getting closer to the ground for. Round-leaved Orchids season has passed in the mountains here, but I enjoyed coming across them on many of my walks and hikes. On one occasion I was trying to take pictures of a bird, but most of my attention was focused on not stepping on these beautiful orchids. In the end the best picture I got was of this orchid flowers.
