I waited for a puff of wind to force open the petals of this bloom. Poppy blossoms are amazingly flexible, and continuously rearrange themselves in a beautiful ballet in response to even slight breezes.

I've divided my older DailyPhotos posts into smaller galleries, numbered from oldest (#1) to newest. Each is sorted each in descending order of upload, which is the same as order of posting date. As I accumulate posts, I'll keep adding new "old' galleries for as long as smugmug enables legacy users such as myself to link galleries to the DailyPhotos community.
