Big pod mariposa lilies

Marty’s photo of the day #4058: Last week’s backpacking trip took Deb (wife), Nellie (dog), and me up to about 6,700 feet. That meant many of the wildflowers were in full bloom. Big pod mariposa lilies were everywhere! And seemingly every one had a different species of bug inside. Photographing the lilies, however, was a bit of a challenge, because a light breeze kept them swaying back and forth. And then, just when the breeze would take the slightest break, Nellie would plow through to say, “Come on Dad. Let’s play!”
