Poppies are amazing. Gorgeous macros Mitch!
Thanks Nancy :-))
A beautiful flower. I have similar orange at my summerhouse, both single and "double".
Thanks Ulla. I also liked your yellow poppy and the cut seed-pods.
Gorgeous shots of the poppy.
Thanks Gunilla :-))
Hi Mitch,thanks a lot for stopping by and leaving a comment under my latest post about the white roses. Recent weekend, in a greenhouse of the botanic garden of Wuerzburg university (--> northern Bavaria, Germany) I took a photo of a flower that looks much the same as your orange poppy. Fortunately I took a photo of its name tag as well: hunnemannia fumariifolia, also know as Mexican tulip poppy, native to the highlands of Mexico. But I assume your poppy is probably a yellow and tame version of an Icelandic Poppy!?!?!Regards from Germany, Uwe.
Hi Uwe. I'm better at photographing flowers than I am at naming them!! LOL. I didn't get the name of this one when I photographed it, but having checked identifying sites, I think you are likely to be right about it being a variety of Icelandic poppy.
Wow!!! I have never gotten quite that close to a poppy! Fascinating!!
Thanks Judy :-))
Wow, very nice.
Thanks Lynda :-))
gorgeous orange flower
Thanks Kathy :-))
Poppy is one of my favorites and this is very beautiful.
Thank you :-))
Lovely close-ups. and this is the first time I see Orange poppy. :)
Thanks Sophie :-)) Many of the ornamental and formal gardens in this area have them.
Those flowers are gorgeous, excellent framing and fine colors! Wonderful photos!
Thanks Leovi :-))
Beautiful macros and shots, I find it very hard with poppies because they flutter at the slightest breeze :). Thank you also for your kind BD wish Mitch. Have a great week.
Thanks Bi Ti :-)) Yes, sometimes a lot of patience is required when photographing poppies!!
beautiful collours, I have yellow poppies in the garden but I've not seen this beautiful orange coloured one before, great shots, love the colour.
Thanks Loretta :-)) Most of the gardens I visit in this area have poppies are different varieties, but I've only seen this orange variety in one particular garden, called Colby Woodland Gardens.
