With work commitments and now that ashes fever is in full swing my camera has dropped down the pecking order a littleSad. I managed to get out yesterday after the cricket and went down to a very hot poppy field.
Thanks for the votes and comments and a special thank you to Colleen for the UASmile.

lovely soft coloured background, shame the flower is in the way, could have been a very good image, lol only kidding the single flower in focus with a blurred two tone depth of view would make a lovely wall canvas. GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin well done.

The single poppy is so striking and its lovely hairy stem so nicely highlighted.

Wow what an amazing image...great light...superb capture. I haven't seen a poppy since I arrived in the UK...but then I have seen a lot of the cricket. My Australian husband was not too impressed with the umpire/Broad debacle.... Off to the Lords test later this week.GrinGrin Congrats on your GEA
