There are relatively few orange flowers that you will find in the wild, but even with narrowed choices, one of the most stunning is butterfly weed.
I spotted this clump from far away on my hike on Monday because it practically glowed, showing through the trees.
It's a milkweed, Asclepias tuberosa, and the shape of the flowers is a dead giveaway for any of the milkweeds.
I'm just chilling, giving myself a good rest before my shift at work tonight. Hope you all have a good weekend.
