I am a father, scientist, tinkerer, and photographer. Who knows what I am likely to post?

I saw this poppy closed up for the night on a recent walk in my neighborhood. It may have been ready for sleep, but there was just enough light to get a good photo. Usually, these don’t look as pleasingly symmetric and undamaged. I especially like the effect of the small purple flowers in the background.
