Lupine

Lupine

Lupinus polyphyllus. In the courtyard of Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.

The bokeh in this shot is amazing. It’s almost like virtual reality, with everything around the flower defocused and just the flower is focused in the center. It also gives the impression of a safari shot, with the elusive wild lupine finally being captured on camera.
