This is a real poppy, from the same patch where I've been taking shots. I have learned that you have to take the shots of the poppies when you get the chance because they sure don't last long. Maybe there's a lesson in there for all of us!

Gosh it really is like tissue paper or crape paper (like we had as kids). A fantastic warm and rich image!!!

Fantastic Jeff, I love the deep rich tones. Yes they do look like crepe paper and there is a lesson in there for all of us!

Poppies do look like they're made of paper-mâché. I think that's part of their visual appeal. This is a great shot.

I've all but given up hope for any poppy shots this year, they come at a fickle time of year. Golden reds! best...jerry

A lovely shot. The color is amazing. Almost looks like very dry, thin red paper folded in into a blossom...

Wow...this gives me a feeling of wanting to grab it and make a paper ball out of it. This is really stunning.
