I thought these delicate white flowers were so pretty. I’m going to have to lean on my expert friends to determine an ID for them. We were somewhere in Colorado, in the mountains, when we started seeing them.

Thank you for your comments and critiques, always appreciated!
Beautiful capture Linda, I agree with Elizabeth, they do look like a serviceberry blossom; we have 3 of these in our backyard & they are filled with white tiny flowers in the spring, which then turn into yummy tasting berries, that both humans & birds can eat :)
I'll be a voice in the wilderness and say they're serviceberry (genus Amelanchier). I believe wild plum blossoms would have a more open look, with the stamens showing prominently. Their being in the mountains makes the serviceberry ID more likely, as well.
excellent capture Linda. Like me I do not use the GPS option on the D500 or the D850. Both now have that but it has the tendency to suck the battery down and I forget to turn it off..... so I never remember where exactly I am am LOL. So. Just use a Dobbie Brothers location.
