The lupins are everywhere all over New Zealand this time of year! Some of the locals think they are weeds; this is something I’ll never understand. I even dug some of these weeds up and planted them around parts of my home, hoping they spring back up next year. It’s gonna be great, I tell ya! :) Sure, they look a little scrabbly in the off season, but not so bad.
These lupins were swaying in the wind outside of home in St. Bathans. I had on the Leica 50mm f/1/4 wide open and snuck up on some pretty ones to get this shot.
