Papaver Birth

It’s tough to catch a poppy in the moment of birth: turn around and the poppy has breached its pod and is a newborn flower. Not only that, poppies are low to the ground on a stalk that is extremely sensitive to any breeze. Fortunately, this Papaver nudicaule cooperated. The only cost: a little laughter from my kids who thought I looked silly hugging the ground with the camera low on a tripod.
