[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This odd poppy among these wild yellow flowers depict the beauty of Nature even in the wildest parts of an abandoned field. It also indicates that Spring is on the threshold!
I was struck with the direction of light and the posture of the flowers, thus creating this simple composition.

Hi Francis Xavier,
Red & Green are complimentery colors & when added to yellow
like your composition has,they become even more vibrant.The whole visual blends so well together.It would be nice to view these instead of the bleakness we are still having,roll on spring indeed.

Nice shot Francis. Good pov, looking up at the orange poppy. Wonderful lighting makes it look almost transparent. Great color and presentation. So pretty. TFS, Lori

A very unique shot with the contrasting flower colors and types. It just looks joyful with the poppy poking out among the other wildflowers.
