Daily Postcard: Flower Of Spotted Saxifrage In The Jemez

Daily Postcard: A Flower of Spotted Saxifrage [Saxifraga bronchialis] is seen Aug. 20 at the East Fork of the Jemez River, downstream from the Las Conchas Trailhead. These flowers are only about 3/8-inch across, so easily overlooked. The spots are only visible if you get your eye very close. Note that on each petal, the dots start light yellow at the inner end, and get progressively darker further toward the outer end. Photo by Randal Pair
