a close up of a flower

This is a macro image of a poppy flower, four days after blooming. On the first day, the iridescent petals crowded around the center pistil, all but obliterating the yellow anthers. Each day, the flower changed, but its beauty remained. Here, the anthers cascade out through a gap in the petals, free to dance in the breeze.
