Metamorphosis, Poppy

As I walked on our boardwalk today I noticed that a bit of orange was showing on a poppy bud. I wanted to capture the unfolding. It was a very slow opening with grace and no fanfare, just giving itself to the sun.

Out of nearly 50 photos I managed to get three that were pretty close-up without too much blur (me, camera, no tripod). The first photo of buds is that of a neighboring poppy.
