Bit late in the day uploading today :-( time seems to be running away today, but hey ho. I spotted this poppy while out for a walk the other day, and me being me I decided to go in as close as I could rather than capture the whole flower.

Thank you as always for all your C&C's very much appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look

Hugh

Excellent macro shot of this poppy Hugh. I have a small clump in my garden, and would have take a similar shot, but was distracted by a bee on another plant, and then the wind got up, so the poppies wouldn't keep still.
