    There are two different plants on the photo, the one with yellow flowers is Eschscholzia, California poppy.
    Do you have more pictures for the plant with white flowers?

    I figured the yellow was a poppy. It's the only picture I have so was hoping there was enough of the other for id. I'll ask the other ladies if they have a picture showing more of the white ones.

    I think I found it looking through California wildflowers. Ghost flower, Mohavea confertiflora. Beautiful translucent flowers.

    Oh good.
    I was about to try and find it. Thanks Eric. Most unusual.
    I have taken liberty of darkening trimming original image.
