This bright and cheerful photo of wild lupins in New Zealand was an easy pick for Nature Photo of the Week. But taking the photograph, however, was not quite so easy. Flickr Chris Gin writes, “[Wind] has been blowing hard all over the country recently and causing the lupines to move around like crazy, but thankfully it died down enough for me to get this shot just before sunset.”
