Corn Poppy

Sometimes when I photograph a broad composition on my light box I take a break when my primary composition is done. I leave my camera on the tripod. Then after a copy of tea or a wander in the garden I come back and look at portions of the whole, and even examine individual flowers as they appear back lit on the light box. Maybe it is time to get closer! This image of a Corn Poppy, Papaver rhoeas, is one result that I think is pretty special.
