[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Monkey Flower found on the Cape Lookout trail at the Oregon Coast. This on is a Yellow Monkeyflower or Mimulus guttatus.

A long-blooming monkeyflower (spring through fall) with brilliant yellow flowers and rounded, green leaves. Its height is variable (3 to 30") and it will spread outward by rhizomes; it also reseeds. It is native to streams and wet, seepy areas from Alaska to Mexico and east to the Great Plains.

Lewis collected a specimen of yellow monkey-flower on July 4, 1806. He and his party of nine men had recently parted ways, temporarily, with Capt. Clark.

Hello Lori,
There was terrible lighting where you took this image, a flash would have helped immensely and would have brought out more detail and depth.
I was watching a program on Oregon on Channel 10 a few days ago and the author of the Gorge Wildflower Handbook was speaking of the Monkeyflower. I also remember clearly the host asking the one question I am going to ask you to the Book's author, "Where is the Monkey"?

Bonjour Lori,
La publication est intéressante mais semble souffrir de surexposition afin de valoriser la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
