Poppy Heads In July

It was just a few short weeks ago in June that I photographed some poppy heads, and now the topes of these same heads are turning brown. No doubt the seeds are hardening inside, getting ready to be blown out through the little holes in the top of the seed head by the wind.

And the insects have been busy snagging the seed heads together. And the breeze has blown bits of debris into the strands.

Life in miniature.
