Imagine my delight when I went out for a walk this afternoon and found my first wild poppies in bloom! This species is papaver rheas, or corn poppy, found in fields and ploughed soil. Mixed in large quantities with animals’ grazing material, it can cause flatulence (distended stomach). The young plants, mixed with other mountain greens, are cooked like spinach. The petals were once mixed with tea as an expectorant. In Spring whole fields are bathed in the red of these poppies. According to Christian tradition, it sprang up from the blood of Christ and for that reason acquired its rich red colour. WARNING! The fruits are poisonous.

Poppies are one of my favourite flowers, i've not managed to capture the detail of one like you have, but will work on it (I only have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7) so the macro is has a limited range + I think the operator needs to learn a bit more about the camera and how to get the best results from it :o)

I think of your versions V1 and V3 are my favourites.

You know when I look at your flowers I can't wait to get home in April and start taking pictures of flowers. I should have some daffs and maybe some tulips if the deer haven't eaten them. Then all sorts of flowers as the season goes on. Love your poppies.....Sandy
