WC and Mrs. WC made another trip to Camas Prairie, this time to see the Camas Lilies in bloom. And, of course, any birds we chanced upon. So the theme of this post is blue.
It doesn’t get much more blue than a Mountain Bluebird.
But the beautiful and beautifully named Lazuli Bunting comes pretty close.
And then there’s the Tree Swallow, which flashes some pretty good blue, and eats mosquitoes.
But the star of the show was the Camas Lily. A single plant is pretty lovely.
But it’s when you see the lilies in huge fields in Centennial Marsh that you begin to appreciate what all the excitement is about.
Some of the fields of lilies can be measured in square miles, enormous stretches of blue flowers.
An altogether excellent color, blue. And an altogether excellent day.
