Two Paintbrushes
I quite like this flower just because it's my favorite colour.

Species: Castilleja miniata (Giant Red Indian Paintbrush)

White Paintbrush
This is probably Castilleja parviflora var. albida but apparently this species hybridizes quite easily so it's tough to be specific (and I know nothing).

Wild Carrot Gone To Seed
I saw these same plants earlier in the summer - I was quite impressed how large the seeds were.
Species: Daucus carota (wild carrot, Queen Anne's lace, bird's nest)

Wild Carrot Undershot
Yes, it is cliché, but sometimes a cliché is better than no shot at all. I wound up lying on a bunch of blackberry so getting up wasn't too comfortable.
Species: Daucus carota (wild carrot, Queen Anne's lace, bird's nest)

Wild Carrot Arching Into Birds Nest
At first I thought this was the flower before it blooms - turns out this is after it blooms.
Species: Daucus carota (wild carrot, Queen Anne's lace, bird's nest)

Sea Blush
There was a large patch of this native plant. It made me smile. I wish I used more DOF and a tripod.
Species: Plectritis congesta (seablush)

Leaves Curling In Mimosa Pudica
Mimosa Pudica, sometimes called "sensitive plant" is something Helen remembers from Hong Kong as a kids. You can buy it in the flower market. Turns out it an invasive plant from the Americas. Oh well.
Species: Mimosa pudica (sensitive plant)

Turns out there are only four species of cactus that grow in Canada. This is the one that is most common in Alberta and the prairies.

Plants have an amazing tolerance to damage. I believe this is Salal.

Bright Golden Aster In Dry Grass
I like how you get a splash of colour in a dry and drab background of dead grass. The park labeled this as "Chrysopsis villosa", but apparently that name is now out of date - it's "Heterotheca villosa var. villosa"
Species: Heterotheca villosa (hairy false goldenaster, hairy goldenaster)

Antelope Brush
This plant and it's crazy deep roots (much deeper than the plant is tall) is the cornerstone of this ecology.
Species: Purshia tridentata (antelope bitterbrush)

Seed Pods
I love to photograph this plant. It picks up the light so well and it has wonderful micro and macro detail.
