  4. Wow!!! Not only is the blue poppy sensational, but I love the way the stems beside it become negative space for the sunlight catching their tiny hairs!!!!

    1. Thanks Judy :-)) There were about 20 flowers in all but this was the only one at the right angle and height to catch the sunlight like this.

  7. I really do love the way the light is playing around the soft blue of the petals and the contrast of the darker, but still detailed background. Beautiful capture!
