[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken on the Tanner Creek Trail, in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. The Monkey Flower likes to grown by streambeds and this one was growing on a patch of rocky soil in the middle of the creek. We waded across to find a shady quiet spot for lunch near these flowers.

There are 9 varieties of Monkey Flower in the Columbia River Gorge. Chickweed, Short-flowered, Purple-stem, Common, Columbia, Lewis', Musk, Dwarf Purple, and Pulsifer's.

From Paul Slichter's Web Site I've narrowed it down to possibly the Columbia or the Pulsifer's neither of which have photos, so I'm not too sure.

Hi Lori,

Excellent shot and well done on the composition.
My Son did a project on this flower for school. I'll show it to him.


Excellent shot of this little bloom, Lori! I love trying to get nice macros of little flowers, so we can see all the details. Good work, Lori!


Well composed pic with good detail of the subject and colour. Lighting is also very good and the BG is sufficiently blurred to assist in the detail. TFS,

We have monkey flowers up here in SW B.C. too, but mostly the purple ones. Nice detail.

Hello Lori, excllent details, g, POV, DOF Perefct colors, TFS Kyle
