Taylor Meadows Towards Black Tusk/Panorama Ridge
Location: Garibaldi Provincial Park
Photo Date: July 2017
I LOVE these wildflowers at Garibaldi Provincial Park but holy moly this is mosquito country! Because in the subalpine at this time of year, a colorful kaleidoscope of flowers are competing for attention from pollinating insects. Up here, flies and mosquitos are more important for this work than bees as they are able to withstand being closer to the sun, dry winds, and freezing temperatures, even in the summer.
I would love to have this as my backyard view (minus the mosquitoes). Wouldn't you?
