Canadian Aspen Daisy

I must have a thing for Aspen Daisies.  They just seem to stand out when I’m in the Rockies. I captured them when I was in the Tetons this year and this one I captured while I was in Banff. I think it’s the contrasting yellow and purple that makes it so distinct. This image was of one just beginning to bud and the delicate purple petals had not yet spread open. Hoping this adds some color and is a bright start to the weekend. Have a great weekend!
