These Poppies come up in my garden each year.
I added a soft green texture by pareeerica and did an Orton Effect.

Beautiful light and lovely color. Was this a hand-held shot? I noticed the shutter speed.

@Julie L. Brown: Glad you like it. Yes, it was hand held and taken in the sun--both practices I usually don't follow. I'm experimenting.

Oh, the Orton Effect really enhances your trademark glow. It looks like you captured a miniature sun.

Ahhh, my favorite of all the flowers, the simple poppy. Lovely. Rather a tender shot, I think.
