Good Morning All,

On the morning of a beautiful sunny day, while on my way to a pleasant walk in the nearby park I happened to locate a only and the only wild poppy flower glowing to its best.

The thin stamens in the heart of this lovely bright red flower were looking so charming and artistic that I had to capture them.

here I cropped in such a way it gives a panoramic view of this lovely flower.

Hope you enjoy this picture ;-)

Thank you for stopping by!

Best regards,

Hi Paras,
A perfectly lit heart of Poppy with splendid color and an accurate interpretation of red!
Such impeccable details in the stamens. Wonderful positioning of the core in the frame and the tight crop is enchanting!
My best regards,

Hi Paras,

The green coronet shaped stamen structure contrasts well against the red petals of this flower. Good sharpness & excellent use of a shallow dof. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

Excellent macro shot, beautiful photo of the poppy heart, sharp and crisp, well done

Hi Paras, I am intrigued by the colors and the elegant petal coming out of the middle. It is just beautiful and sooo real. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Paras,

The macro point of is showing the details and colors of the interior of the flower. The subject is well framed. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
