White California Poppy

I’m used to thinking of the California poppy as a wonderful red-and-orange ragamuffin that grows along our roads almost like a weed. The red version is a great flower to photograph, for example Wind and California Poppy Quartet. But how nice to also have a white California poppy, Eschscholzia californica ‘Alba’, in my garden.

On Saturday morning I photographed this bud at f/40 with my telephoto 200mm macro lens to create focus on the water drop near the stem of the flower and a nice bokeh background effect. Inside the house, the kids were running wild, and I was glad to be out in the peace of my garden photographing flowers in my pajamas, a cup of coffee on its way.
