All but one of these photobombs occurred in the first half of May 2020, when wildflowers were near their peak in the Payette National Forest at elevations between 4,000-4,500 feet.
My dogs are patient as I constantly stop to take closeups of wildflowers when we’re out in the forest. They explore nearby as they wait, but they often wander unexpectedly through my carefully-curated scenes.
The original dog photobombs post is here, the second installment (sub-theme: fluffbutts) here, the third installment (sub-theme whatcha lookin’ at?) is here, the fourth (sub-theme Mays gone by) is here, and the fifth (no sub-theme) is here.
These wildflowers are long gone, but it was fun to compile this group of photos, revisiting how beautiful they made the landscape in springtime. They’re a reminder that not everything about 2020 has been awful. Enjoy this touch of spring gone by as we head into autumn…
I delight in exploring the national forest near my Idaho home on foot, whether trail running, hiking, or xc skiing, with my two dogs by my side, taking photos of nature and wildlife. An author and freelance writer, I love observing and writing about the natural world, and dogs, and am a long-time contributing editor at Bark magazine. I used to practice law for a living. I much prefer the writing life.
