I was looking for an image for a vivid picture of a poppy for my bedroom. Internet search provided many but your photo is closest to the image I had hoped to acquire. DO you ever sell prints of your photos? Do you have other poppy photos? Please let me know if your image is available for purchase. My email is mozb@u.washington.edu. Thank you and much continued success. moz benado #1000361
