Heavy Laden in the Rock Rose

Getting ready to drive to the Smash in the Square 2021 Spring Festival at The Village at Castle Pines, Colorado. So I’m posting the next few in advance.

Got a few neat shots this week on the rock roses. This one happens to be a pink one. But there are red, magenta, yellow, orange, etc., too. Some days they’ll open right up. Others…they remain closed. And they’re so flappy in the wind. It’s always a thrill to get a good shot on any one of these. And look at her pollen basket!
