Another "what flower is this?"

I was in a field in Northern Missouri last week and took a few pictures.

Here are some of them Imgur: The magic of the Internet (note: scary bugs).

Does anyone have an idea of what the flower is? I have two pictures of it in the link, one from the side with the sun behind it and one from above.

A type of poppy?

Something in the mallow family, almost certainly

Venice mallow

Thats it exactly! thanks!!

Nice spider and mantis.

Thanks. That’s a Chinese mantis. A good size one too
