A wonderful contribution to our theme of January - and a real fest for the eyes. The play of light and shadow in the petals is so beautiful and causes somehow a 3D effect. the contrast in colours between flower and background is stunning. I like this one very much.

Yes, this is an unusal color for the European Poppy. Bright red is the color I remember from our trip Provence, France. I like the POV, down low and below giving us a different perspective of the flower. I like the details the perspective has given us, texture in the petals and the blurred shadows of the inner details of the flower. Excellent focus and there is nothing in the BG to make the eye drift away from the flower details. Excellent!
