Here is a bee balm (Monarda fistulosa) flower in the Lefthand OHV area of Boulder County, Colorado. The flower petals have a most wonderful aroma and are edible. They have a caffeine-like stimulative effect on us. This photo was taken on July 24, 2021.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm).
