  1. Can’t beat the simple red poppy, Sue. very nice indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. beautiful…red is a difficult color to photograph.

  3. Just can’t beat a lovely red poppy!

  4. Beautiful, dear Sue!
    Warm greetings from quite windy Poppyland,
    Dina & co

  5. Awwh! Love this 🙂 I threw some terribly tired orangey bronze roses out this morning and thought of you, Sue 🙂

  6. Lovely. I’m a poppy-lover (in the flower form only, I hasten to add.) 🙂

  7. Did you really photograph it in the wind Sue?

  8. I love the red texture in this photo…
    Fantastic!

  9. Super poppy! I must go looking for wild poppies next year.

    • Sue

      Well, this was in the remains of a wildflower bed at Wisley, and it was on its own….I can never find lots of wild poppies. If you find some, do tell me and I’ll be along!!

  10. Interesting comment by Brenda. I wasn’t aware of that, but red catches our eye most and we must be aware where we place the red element in the frame – I guess. You did wonderfully as usual.

  11. I love the way you have conveyed the fragility of this poppy. The petals could fly off any moment – just a breath of wind…

    I love this, Sue. Great color and composition. And of course your subject is a winner. I have planted some poppies and hope the will bloom next summer. I remember being on a tour for my first trip to England and seeing fields of beautiful blue flax and emerald green hedge rows with poppies scattered along it. The most beautiful scene I have ever laid eyes on.

  13. You’ve managed the red beautifully.
