Hi, my name is Charlie Russell, and I’ve always been interested in photographing wildflowers. In recent years I enrolled in the Tuleyome Certified California Naturalist program, and that has helped me expand my interests into wildlife, birds, insects, and much more.
This website features the best of my photos, articles about places to hike to see wildflowers, and pages that go into detail on some of my favorite natural places to visit. I hope that you enjoy them!
This website is not intended to be a “wildflower hotline” where you can find up to the minute reports on where to find wildflower displays at the time that they are blooming. There are other sites that do this, but there also is concern because these “hotlines” can bring in large crowds of people who may trample on the flowers and trespass on private property. Please, if you take one of these hikes, be respectful of private property and take only pictures.
