Evening Flower Meadow

At the Alpine Loop summit, where we stopped for our picnic, there was a meadow full of wildflowers.
(I think they might be some kind of mallow).
I've not seen wildflowers that full and stunning for years- probably the effect of all the spring rain we had.
Framed by aspens, aren't they gorgeous?
Also stunning close up, with the evening light on them:

But I think my favorite view of them is the backlit one.

The back lighting makes the petals glow.
