Giant Blazing Star – *Mentzelia laevicaulis*. A native to the mountains of the West Coast, this one likes the heat, but the flowers close up in the direct sun. EARLY morning is the best time to shoot this one, when some sun illuminates the yellow of this really cool flower . . .
Taken up on Mt. Baldy, Southern California, USA
