I just returned from shooting the Antelope Valley Poppy's near the Poppy Reserve. (Lancaster California).

Mid-day sun with low winds encouraged the Poppy's to open. My last visit it was cold and windy with most of the flowers staying closed.

Here is a wide angle shot, 22mm f/16 with efs 17-85 mm lens. Kind of scary getting close to the ground to shoot with recent reports of Mohave Rattle Snakes in the area. I hope it was worth the risk.

Hi Thomas,

It isnice seeing thesepoppies growing in their home environment. They do so much to light up our gardens over here.

(I'm glad you missed the snakes.)
