Red Poppy (Type "French Flounce")
I thought this was an unusual type of poppy and so had to do some research to discover it is called "French Flounce" but is generally known as Peopy poppy orCarnation poppy, for obvious reasons.

A super sharp shot of this beautiful poppy, of which you have got the reds just right. I like the pov you have taken of the poppies and set against the blue sky really makes them stand out.

Love the dof behind and those Poppies - how strange! Yes they do look like carnations.. the petals look 'full' below but the tops look shredded ! Cracking shot Frank!

I know nothing about poppies (or any other flowery, planty thing come to that ) but I was surprised to learn that they are poppies. They are very very pretty, though, and you've got a fine capture.

I like the good strong vibrant colours in this, the composition works well too with the low POV and the background has been well diffused, A nice image Frank.

Can but agree with my colleagues above a very nice shot indeed.
