BAMONA for help with an ID of this one on some sulphur buckwheat.
cow parsnip. Possibly osha. Apparently the leaves are a more telling species indicator in wildflowers than the petals. I'll have to keep that in mind and make sure to get shots of flowers I can't identify in the future to make it easier for folks I tap into for help.
Fritillary on an orange agoseris. EDIT: Old friend of the program Mike Fisher specifies it as a Variegated Fritillary.
heartleaf arnica. EDIT: Mike Fisher to the rescue again. This is a Gnophaela vermiculata, commonly known as the Police-Car Moth or Green Lattice.
Wyoming paintbrush injecting a splash of red into the color palette.
