Photograph Notes:  I love this image of a poppy which I found growing wild in the pastures of San Juan Island while hiking cross-country. The brightness in the petals, coupled with the fragility of the petals, exudes a sense of life. One thing that makes this photo work for me is that the extraordinary bright red colors of the flower stand out so sharply against the brown gray background. (Compare this with the infrared light photograph.)

If you like this poppy, there are some great books on flower photography that you might also be interested in:
