Poppy Pods

Poppy pods range in color from green to light brown and may be as small as a dime or as large as a golf ball. They produce a sticky latex known as opium that contains many different alkaloids, including codeine and morphine. According to Purdue University, fresh pods are richest in morphine, while dried pods contain higher amounts of codeine. Inside the pods are seeds that can be planted or used for other purposes like cooking.

Here's a collection of beautiful Poppy pod photographs taken by analog cameras.
