Aphid, I think ... not sure if it's a good enough shot for an ID.

I made a point of photographing the flowers I found up here at 9200 ft, thinking that maybe there would be a higher likelihood of native species. No such luck!

I made a point of photographing the flowers I found up here at 9200 ft, thinking that maybe there would be a higher likelihood of native species. No such luck! This species I didn't recognize because, unlike at lower elevation, it had no 'telegraph pole' -- it was dwarfed and growing low to the ground.

This blurry observation represents the perils of too many birding tours in the world, and not enough odonate ones. This meadow was our turn-around point, and as the rest of the group called for me to join them as they returned back up the hill, I was waiting to get a better glimpse that never came of a large darner patrolling back and forth. What was it -- something native and interesting? Or an introduced common darner? Dunno. I think if I could have stayed a while longer, all mystery would have been revealed to me.
