Thank you Diane, Darren, Casey, Laura, Allan, Donna, Colette, Michael, Karen, K.S, Noel, Jill, Stacey, Jennifer, Terry, and Kathleen!!! I really appreciate your comments!

If you look really close, you can see a tiny cobweb going from the bottom of the poppy to the stem. I didn't notice it when I took the photo, but when the slides came back from the lab, there it was :) I think I might have caught a "home building" in progress *S* #692754

f5.6, 300mm lens, 12mm extention tube, tripod, Kodak E100 VS slide film. Taken at a local garden at sunset. The sun was coming from behind the poppy and shining right on those little hairs making them "pop" out. I wanted to make the red stand out, so I underexposed it by 1/2 stop to what the camera said was correct.
