Sleeping Poppy

We had a brief break in the rain late yesterday so I grabbed my new Sony 90mm G macro lens and found a hillside of California Golden Poppies. Thought it would be fun to let you guys come up with the caption for this image - get your thinking caps on - let's have some fun with this one!

#Sonya7RII, #Sony90mmGmacro, f/11, 1/4th sec., ISO 100

SONY ILCE-7RM2 2/5 seconds F/11.0 ISO 100 135 mm (35mm equiv.)

I had visions of the wizard who wears the coned hat...and Bart Simpson's head for the other poppy....What a a dynamic beauty this is! Your Macro lens has no trouble with this one :-) Say hello to White Sands for me :-)
