A Photographic Journey of California Lupines

Stuart Wilson has long held a love and fascination of the genus Lupinus. After many springs spent photographing our local species, he decided to embark on a project to photograph every species and variety (104) found in California. Traveling throughout the state in 2015 and 2016, he has reached his goal (with a few noteworthy exceptions). He will give an overview of the great variety of forms found in the genus with tips on identification.
