Poppy Love

Common Poppy (Papaver rhoeas) – Kind of like the old Donny Osmond hit back in the early 70’s (for those of us who can remember – or even want to remember) but poppies and not puppies. I love these – poppies – and as soon as I see that bright scarlet red out amidst the sea of green grasses in the fields and meadows I aways make a b-line for them. This one was the only one I could see, and it was a beauty.

    1. Thank you, Linda. I would have liked a bit more depth of field, but sometimess a little detail can add to an image which gives an indication to the nature of an environment.


  1. Beautiful shot, Pete. I don’t know if I have ever seen poppies in the wild, but I am attracted to them when I visit gardens. I last one I saw at a garden was a bright orange in color.
