Title: Prickly Poppies with a grasshopper and a bumblebee
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 bumblebee and grasshopper are unknown to me but I hope to identify them later.
