Title: Prickly Poppies with a small bee

Location: West Desert, Tooele County, Utah

Date: 6/28/2017The Prickly Poppy (Argemone munita) protects itself with sharp little spines that cover its leaves, stems, and fruits. Prickly Poppy flowers are 3-5 inches across, white with yellow centers of clustered stamens, and delicate wrinkled petals that look like crepe paper.

The bee is unknown to me and I hope to identify it later.
