Star Tulip Yesterday my good friends and I went on a photo shoot to some higher elevations of the western Sierra National Forest. The soul purpose of this photoshoot was to photograph wildflowers. Unfortunately we were a bit early. There were a few, but most of those were at the lower elevations of 6000-7000 ft. Above that the selection dropped way down to just a couple. But as always, what was there was beautiful. The Star Tulip is one of the first flowers to appear at the upper elevations. It is very small and close to the ground, but has an almost ethereal, translucent appearance. A very pretty little flower. Stay healthy!
