Gary, Gorgeous capture of this poppy, great capture of the pedals and the stem holding the main flower up. Also great capture with great details of the bud. Remarkable capture of the texture on the pedals of this poppy flower. and great details on the stem. Like the way you have blurred out the rest of the background to center in only on the poppy. Great floral photo, voted, google and tweet promoted
