As taken today, apart from a slight crop.

By tonight the heavy rain will probably have destroyed it

We have the same ones coming out in our garden too. So delicate....and then they are gone.

Peter I thought you said "So delicious....and then they are gone" so I wanted to ask you how they taste but never mind.

Nice photo Belinda, hopefully it will survive the rain.
Maybe you should've used a little bit of flash light to fill in the shadows in the plant, just a really tiny bit.

I must admit that with the amount of light around, I had not thought about using flash. How do you control it so that you only get a "really tiny bit"

I dont mind the dark background, it helps make the poppy stand out, not that it needs it with that amount of vibrant colour screaming PICTURE TIME!

I think with flowers you need to try lots of angles & compositions, I can never seem to get the right combination

You could alway use a deflector instead of a flash. It is not an expensive investment...a nice 5 in 1 about 22inches round and just let the natural light bounce off the deflector filling in the shadows of the flower. Now I must confess I am just learning this myself...but sometimes it makes the fill in light great.

And then again, it all depends on what you are really wanting and liking!
