Menzies' Wallflower

That's Menzies' Wallflower. It's endangered, and only lives in a small area of sand dunes on the California coast and in particular is almost gone in Monterey. I know this because there was a convenient sign explaining why they had little wire cages over many of them. (The cages are for deer, not people). I found one without a cage to shoot with a long lens.

I was in Monterey for a couple of days, tagging along at a scientific conference. It was like living in The Big Bang Theory (the TV show, not the creation of the universe). I have a bunch of special orders piled up (mostly people getting in ahead of the price increase I imagine) and I'll get those ordered momentarily.

Shoots in the new studio start Wednesday. I have one last shoot from the old place to edit - I'm not sure of the timing but hopefully those will get done in a timely fashion. But for the next couple of weeks I'm taking a bit of "shoot first, edit later" so I can get some shots banked. I still have the major part of the move to do, the old house to fix/list/sell, and other life disturbances planned so it's hard to do really long term planning but if I can get somebody nice into the studio, that's great.
