    This one's a tiny Penstemon with a relatively huge flower that almost makes it look comical. As these Penstemons grow and get covered in bloom, they look comparatively normal. The photos were taken on a hike to Lake Oesa, Yoho National Park in mid-July. Beautiful lichen covered rocks absolutely cover the area.
