California Poppy near Bumblebee.  As I mentioned in my last post, we’re having a spectacular wildflower season in Arizona this spring, meaning that the number of possible subjects for a photo of a single blossom in the lower desert is truly uncountable.  But this one, with its soulfully bedraggled demeanor, insisted it was the one I was looking for.  I couldn’t argue with that - nor could my camera.<br />
