Here are some wildflower close-ups from last week’s trip to Carrizo Plain National Monument. 14 photos are a lot for a single blog post but I’m still excited about the sheer beauty and abundance of the wildflowers there. I’ve included so many photos because I think each of them reveals a different aspect of the flowers.
Take the wide angle photo of the Tidytips and Phacelias on the cracked mud for example – that’s essentially the soil on which most of these wildflowers grow. Mostly dry, dusty, cracked or crumbling mud. It’s utterly fascinating!
