The last post, entitled "Flowers", included the middle photo in the set below. I asked if anyone knew what flower this might be. Well, bribri suggested it might be the arnica montana, or Leopard's Bane in English (Arnika in German). The illustration above is from the book,
Flora von Deutschland Österreich und der Schweiz (1885) by Otto Wilhelm Thomé (1885 Ort: Gera-Untermhaus), which shows the arnica montana, a wild flower native to central Europe (check out the link on "Haliaeetus"). Compare that illustration with the three photos below to come to your own conclusion. The bright yellow flower below would certainly appear to be a Compositae, of which the arnica flower is a part, but I've decided to take some more photos of these flowers next spring into summer in order to take a closer look at the flowers, leaves and stems. The illustration, by the way, appears here under the GNU Free document license (source: http://www.biolib.de/) and can also be seen on Wikipedia (Google search for Arnica montana).
In case you're wondering, the photo below shows a bumblebee (Bombus ssp.) busy doing what they do best, gathering nectar! So have a close look and draw your own conclusions! In the meantime, I plan to post some more photos of the trail from Kitsilano to Point Grey Beach in Vancouver on my companion blog, Haliaeetus. That post should include photos of the scenery plus flowers and wildlife. Meantime, enjoy these!
