Very good close-up inspection of the pod with some nice shadowing cast from the overhead sun, Herman: good detail and textures.

Well spotted, Herman. Some good sculpting from the shadow and lovely texture. There's a tag 'saturday shadows' for these.

Poppies are so photogenic in every stage of their growth - what a great capture - love the shadows which have formed an inverted crown effect on the seedpod - great detail on the top of the head xx

Is this opium? Only kidding - but it makes for a great image. Incidentally, "Flobadob" was part of the language used by "The Flowerpot Men", two television puppet characters who enchanted British children during the 1950s. The puppets were called "Bill" and "Ben". Now you know!

Regards.
