Default California Wild Poppies (FZ35+LC55)

Our state flower did not bloom well this year. Usually, our hillsides are covered by these colorful orange flowers, but it has been a bust the last 2 years. These were shot at our local botanical garden. They come in different shades of orange.


#1 - The traditional yellow ones most commonly seen in the wild




#2 Darker orange visited by a bee




#3 I think this is a bud




#4




#5
