Locality: USA - Nevada - In a Joshua-tree (Yucca brevifolia) ecosystem at about 3,000 feet elevation, west of Searchlight, Nevada.

Note: True to its common name, this yellow Evening Primrose blooms at night. I had to get up before dawn the next day to capture its blossom fully open. It stands just 2 to 3 inches tall. Photo was taken March 28. (Sent: Alpinefirstname.lastname@example.org)
