I found this fireweed growing along the North Fork Skokomish trail. I spent quite a bit of time working to get the focus to my satisfaction. Primarily, I wanted to avoid a sharp background … since that tended to distract from the fireweed. However, I wanted the snag to retain enough identifying characteristics so that it was recognizable.
This isn’t what I know as a Day Lily, but it bloomed one day and the next day it was totally gone. So, it must be a day lily, I guess.
Usually, I have seen these in the deep woods. I found these along the trail in Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend.
