Undoubtedly an Eschscholzia species, perhaps E. caespitosa.

You need to look at the base of the flower to see if there's a collar there to distinguish between E. caespitosa and E. californica. I can't really tell one way or the other based on these pics.

Yeah, the caespitosas I've seen have a bit smaller petals and less orange, but that was in southern CA and I know these species vary over larger differences. You do need to see the frill to know for sure.

There are several species of Eschscholzia in California and I'd love to see some of the more rare ones on this site!
