    A few views of a brilliant oriental poppy. So hard to capture the grandeur.
    C&C always valued, thanks for looking.

    Absolutely great shot! Love the detail on the buds, the crumpled petals and the black background.

    Great Set! :icon_salut: I especially like the lighting in #1&2. Also, good close-up of the pollen. Good job.

    All nice pics but #2 for me, it's nice and sharp and it just pops against that dark background.

    Thank you very kindly!

    Thanks!

    Thanks very much!

    Thanks K9

    Thank you


    Thanks very much guys. I'm trying to mature with my flower photography. I think somebody said your first 10,000 flower photos are your worst, so... :)

    The day after these were shot, a stiff breeze came through and took all but one petal off of the poppy. I was sad, but there's another bud.

    I like the first one best. I misread the title and thought it read "puppy".
