Indian Paintbrush

Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja angustifolia) on the approach
to Juniper Canyon. Magic Mountain is in the background.
Red Rocks, Nevada. April 2008.

This is an early bloomer from the Figwort Family. The bright red tips are actually not flowers. The true tiny green flower is enveloped and hidden from view by these tips.
