So I went up to the Sierras with some friends to see the annular eclipse this last weekend, and was also pleasantly surprised to see a lot of spring flowers. First some pics of the eclipse and the weird suncircles that would filter through the leaves of the trees.
More after the jump.
I was even able to capture the full life cycle of the flower (albeit on various plants).
And I'm a bit rusty, can anyone ID this one? [Edit - Thanks to James at Lost in the Landscape for the ID on this one. Looks like a Triteleia, specifically bridgesii]
