Red Heads

By Richsr
Discovered a field of Poppies in flower about a mile away from my home last week. Wanted to get some close ups of them in the sun.
Shot with a polarizer attached and using the sun to back light them.

Thanks for looking and comments and feedback always welcome.
Regards
Richard

It's so hard to capture the colour of these wonderful blooms, they float on the slightest of wind.
