Answer to last week's photo quiz

Western anemone, Pulsatilla occidentalis. Shot up at Mount Rainier. For those who don't know, the "ballerinas in tutus" are actually anemone seed heads, not the flower.

I love them. When they're full, they are SO Dr. Seuss, scattered in a sea of blue lupin against the black, ragged Tatoosh Mountains? Woah. Some day I'll dig up one of my pics of that scene and share it.



P.S. I learned today I MIGHT be heading up there this summer for a visit. SWEET!
