Excellent macro shot of the interior of the poppy, Ann: wonderful detail captured, and a real frame filler.

It does make a beautiful flower. Vibrant colour and the view past the petals to the centre gives a lovely composition.

A very strong frame filling crop, which highlights this rather beautiful poppy so very well. Gorgeous natural colour, and crisp detail throughout.

Beautiful rich colour and lovely detail where it matters most Ann. I don't know much about flowers and the like but we planted some wild seeds earlier in the year and a poppy bush sprang to life, so far we have had well over 100 heads on the bush and still loads more to come, is this normal ?
Regards,
Geoff.
