Despite some initial doubt, the super bloom is back. Which means everyone in L.A. is driving approximately two hours to snap that perfect pic for Instagram.

There's nothing quite like the crisp spring air, rolling hills and epic views of at least ten influencer photoshoots to achieve true inner peace.

And in case you didn't know, wildflowers also make a perfect natural backdrop for sponsored content, so don't forget your skincare products.

There are so many genres of Instagram super bloom photos, it's impossible to quantify all of them. But we broke down a few categories for your viewing pleasure.

Oh, I didn't see you there! I was just sitting alone in a field of poppies not waiting to have my photo taken.

Oh, I didn't see you there! I was just frolicking alone in a field of poppies (I brought a hat).

I'm hot... and also wildflowers.

I brought a wedding dress.

Just laughing with all my best friends!

I'm a farm boy who must water these wildflowers with my giant watering pot.

But in all seriousness, the flowers are blooming in low elevation desert areas across Southern California. Anza-Borrego State Park (they have a handy flower map), Lake Elsinore or Diamond Valley Lake are your best bets. Wildflowers have also been spotted closer to home at Point Mugu and Chino Hills State Park.

It might not seem like it, but flowers are for everyone (not just influencers).

Just please don't trample them while you take your selfies.
