Shootingstar Buds
Dodecatheon jeffreyi

When I first started seeing these along Gavan Ridge, I thought that perhaps I was looking at a new flower. It was only after I had seen a few that were further along that I realized they were shootingstars that were a bit behind their relatives on Harbor Mountain.

Location: Harbor Mountain-Gavan Hill Trail, Sitka, Alaska
