Northern California Wildflowers

This gallery is a collection of California native wildflowers and plants, mostly from the San Francisco Bay Area. I've specified the location in the description below each photograph. If you see any incorrect species identification, please let me know by leaving a comment for the particular wildlflower.

Some of my favorite places to go for wildflowers are Edgewood County Park, Picchetti Ranch, Stevens Creek County Park, Sunol Regional Wilderness and Hidden Villa.

Although I am currently more interested in photographing North American birds, I have always enjoyed photographing and identifying native plants. If you visit the page with birds listed by site, you will find many of these wildflower photographs mixed with photos of the birds found at the same location.
