Mostly macro images. Flowers from below May Lake almost to the top of Mount Hoffman, 9000 to 10,000 feet altitude. Insects: bee, beefly, butterfly, beetles, & at least three different genera of ants. A mystery insect -- or is it a seed? Granite, of course, alone or with the plants.
Please help with the IDs -- leave a comment!
