FOTD – January 7, 2022: Orange Poppies

Super-bloom of desert flowers (including poppies!) at Anza Borrega, California; captured with 70mm DSLR lens.

I’m trying to escape winter (I know, it’s almost ironic to those of you in snow that a soCal girl says this), and started looking at my spring flower pictures. We had a fabulous super-bloom of desert flowers in 2019. I’ve included a couple of those pictures in anticipation of our upcoming bloom, as well as one California poppy that I recently found, to my delight, which I am using for Cee’s photo challenge – Flower of the Day (FOTD).

Timing is everything! Desert flowers bloom early, often before the first day of spring, which is just around the corner for the southwest.

I am an avid nature and ecology lover and enjoy sharing my photography in my blog writings. I will often be out early in the morning or late in the evening with my camera, trying to capture the peacefulness and beauty around me.
