I have come across a field with a handfull of poppies in flower, but plenty of flowers waiting to come out, I think if they all appear at once it will be a wonderfull sight, and I intend going back to check in a few days.

This shot shows one of the early openers, looking a little windswept in the strong winds, with a couple of the others "in waiting".

Hope you like it.

That bold, beautiful red against the dark green is a sight to behold and the detail is awesome, superb back light within the poppy. Really nice work.

The timing to nail them in full bloom, will be tight, especially due to the strange weather we are having at the momentSmile

Cracking image Phil, I saw some of these on the verge of the road to Portishead the other day and thought to myself I must stop and have a crack at them, if I end up with anything in the same league as this I'll be more than happy...

Love the way you've caught this beautiful specimen in the sunlight which accentuates its vibrant colour. I haven't seen a decent poppy field in Gloucestershire for several years now
