Lupine in Montana

Artist's Description

Lupine is a genus of the Fabaceae (pea or legume) family. The name Lupine (Lupinus) came from “lupis” meaning wolf. It was once believed that Lupine were wolf-like by devouring soil nutrients. Actually, like other members of the Pea family, they prefer poor soil and, in their life cycle, enrich or “fix” nitrogen in the soil.

I will be uploading other Lupine photos and close-ups. What I like about this photo is the way the background moves even though it is thrown out of focus.

Taken in the Bitterroot Mountains west of Victor, Montana USA.

Canon EOS 7D, 1/250s, f/7.1, ISO: 200, 52mm

This photo is included in my Lupine card series 1 and is available in prints, posters, etc.
