It may be just another California Poppy, but this is not just another photograph!
This is amazing. The backlighting and the detail that you teased out through the petals of the stamen in the center is amazing!

Congratulations on you POTD and enjoy your 20D. It doesn't eat batteries like the 50D. But, no doubt you've upgraded higher by now. #8665311
