Interior of orange California poppy, cropped, but SOOC

This is the interior of what I believe is a California poppy, Eschscholzia californica, which plant was growing wild in many places in San Diego County in late March and early April. The flowers are about 2 inches/6 cm across, growing on plants that are about a foot/3 dm in height. They are lovely, standing there in the wind and sun. This particular plant was growing across the road from Dudley's Bakery, in Santa Ysabel, California.

 

I later posted the entire photo, from which this crop was taken. It is here.

 

Isn't God a great artist? Larger sizes available.
