    1. Thanks Mormor :-))

      While I prefer the macros shots, I know some people prefer to see the whole flower, so I post a series.

  5. 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.

    1. 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.

  10. 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.

    1. 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.
