Adelbert Ave: Matijila Poppy

Photo: Diane Edwardson, June 5, 2015.  In the wild, Matijila Poppies (Romneya coulteri) are a rare native species, but they are a spectacular addition to cultivated  native gardens.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

These are the native wildflowers I was shooting when the Red-Shouldered Hawk announced its presence and demanded its 15 minutes of fame.
