Ideas what kind of Arctic this is?
There were three females with one calf. They took off running into the field. One of my companions saw a drone flying, which seemed to be the object of their fear. Sad.
Numerous ground squirrels were hanging around the picnic area (of course), looking for any crumbs left behind. One was even so brave to jump on someone's lap. They scurried in and out from the rock wall and trees next to the tables.
It was a yellow sunflower and I honestly don't know what kind. There is a ladybug in the lower right corner of the submitted photo.
Another one has a bee - looks like a bumble bee.
And another photo appears to have a weevil of some type on it.
Can't tell if this is a Pearl Crescent or a Northern Crescent
Fished above the pool on the Big Thompson just below Fern Creek. Nice Greenback Cutthroat.
Fern Lake Cutthroat. Unfortunately only got to fish the lake less than 30 minutes before a lightning and hail storm set in. Lost a few nice fish and caught a few small fish.
What type of plant is this?
