What beautiful light! Are these wildflowers? They resemble prickly poppies that grow here in TX...Love the crinkly paper-like petals and that center (with all that luscious detail!) - Beautiful!! Happy New Year to you and yours, Kathy - all the very best!

Marvelous lighting on this great poppy capture, Kathy! Fabulous detail, especially in the center and I love the pleated textures in the petals. Superb!
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your new bundle of joy!
