Macro Monday

Matilda poppy, taken at the San Diego Zoo. I think the petals look like paper, instead of a real flower. It's real, I promise.

Now, go visit Lisa, to see who else played today.


  1. This is so stunning! I thought the poppy looked like some soft folds of white cotton material with a spikey pom pom in the middle! Amazing how a macro stirs the imagination!

  2. I was thinking "paper" too! Really great detail in this shot.

  3. The petals DO look like paper. I see a hundred little dancers gliding in the center. :)

  4. Great shot. I really like this poppy. I like how large they are.

  5. Neat, it does look like paper! Great!

  6. I'm very fond of poppies. I don't think I've seen one like this before. Are you sure it's real? (Only kidding!)

  7. Awesome shot. I thought at first it was a Clematis,on first glance.
    Its beautiful.
