Photo of the Week: Prickly Poppies (Argemone munita) at Mono Lake, California

I learned the hard way just how prickly these poppies are after I got up from taking this photograph and felt hundreds of tiny thorns in my knees.  While they are no fun to touch, they are stunning to observe in full bloom in the sands surrounding Mono Lake, California.
