Close/Open: Poppies

Poppies are nyctinastic, meaning they close at night and open during the day. These two photos were taken early in the morning. The first photo was taken right when the light hit the still-closed petals. However, looking at the first photo, the coiled petal is abstract and could be anything: a strange rock, draped silk, or some exotic food. Even the perspective is skewed and difficult to place. The second photo was taken some minutes later (from a different angle) when the warmth of the sun was opening the petals, but the early-morning dew still clung to the petals. The second photo, although taken of the same thing, has a completely distinctive feeling: it shows the delicate audacity of a poppy flower adorned with tiny droplets.
