POTD: Balsam Root Forest

Balsam Root Forest
Bozeman, Montana
2011

I went out this morning to take some more flower photos and regardless of the flower species of interest, I found it was hard to take a photograph without at least one Balsam Root blossom in the background. On some slopes like this one, there seemed to be nothing but Balsam Root. It is normally the most predominant of our wildflowers but this year it seems to have really taken over.
