These have bloomed in gardens all over my neighborhood! This particular flower was perfect for photographing. When I made the photo, I had barely any wind. This allowed me to shoot at about 8.0 so I could render the delicate, papery petals sharp and clear along with good detail in the center. I wish when I snapped the shot, I'd left a little more green in the right hand corner. Ah, well. I made several images and this one had the most green.
I should know what kind of poppies these are but I don't. If you do, post me the name and I'll change the title. Thanks!
