Poppies Two ~ More California Poppies from nearby the Antelope Valley poppy preserve.
Poppies Four ~ The California Poppies were lovely among the Goldfields and other wildflowers. This type of poppy tends to have smaller blooms and grow low to the ground. Close-ups like this require hands-and-knees shooting.
These California Poppies are not from this year, as I haven't been out there where there are poppies and other wildflowers galore, but they show how glorious they can be this time of year. The small yellow flowers are called Goldfields, and were blanketing the hillsides below the poppies.
