1 picture in a note above! :)

When I went out this morning, I saw this poppy just about to open, with its pod casing straining like a suitcase about to explode! I ran into the house! I ran out of the house with my camera! I zoomed over to the poppy...BOOOOOOO!!!!!! I MISSED IT!!! This beautiful poppy JUST opened up and you know, I think I heard it laughing at me! RUDE!!! :D I did get a picture of it just after opening, but it was from the other side, and this one shows another poppy peeking out from the background and adds nice color and balance to the image.

What a beautiful shot this is, Janet. So delicate with the shallow DOF. You do know how to show us the beauty of the poppy! Excellent work.

It's amazing how fast they "pop" out of their casings! I haven't had the pleasure of seeing this happen so quickly and "just" missing it! I am sad for you that you missed the shot you wanted, but I have a feeling it may happen at another time! This is a beautiful poppy, very similar to the ones growing in my little garden. The one in the notes is quite different than the ones I have though - it's so neat seeing all the different kinds of poppies there are!
