A Red Poppy flower opened this morning. The seed was planted 124 days ago in one of my indoor AeroGarden hydroponic gardens. I have been watching the bud for the last several day wondering when it would finally open — each day setting up a camera to record a time-lapse video. Images taken every 10 seconds with a Nikon D850 camera and 105 mm f/2.8 macro lens with a 2.0x TC-E III teleconverter (ISO 100, 210 mm, f/8, 1/30 sec). Next time I need to do a better job trying to keep things in focus as the flower moved as it was opening.
