California Poppy Field

California Poppy,Eschscholzia californica, is our state flower. When each flower opens in the morning they look like their other name: Cup of Gold. This image was taken just as the petals were opening for the day. They generally don't open unless touched by the sun's rays. At day's end they all close up for the night. If caught open, these flowers will not survive long in a heavy rain.
