Macro Monday: the hearts of poppies

A few weeks ago, I shared several photos of orange poppies I got the chance to photograph while walking around San Diego’s Balboa Park. Here are a couple more close-ups of those poppies. I find the shapes at the center of each poppy fascinating. On this yellow orange poppy, the center consists of a fuzzy star with 10 arms. Have you ever seen a sea star that looks exactly like this?

This white poppy would look quite dull without a bright yellow center. That fuzzy center really is something.
