Welcome To My Blog!

This blog is where I post all my practice shots. I especially enjoy macro nature photography. Everything in God's creation is so beautiful and I praise Him for it.

.poppy.

Poppy flowers have 4 to 6 petals. 
Petals may be almost any color, and some have markings. 
Prior to blooming, the petals are crumpled in the bud, and as blooming finishes, the petals often lie flat before falling away.
 A whorl of stamens is in the center ofthe flower.
The pollen of the oriental poppy, Papaver orientale, is dark blue. The pollen of the field poppy or corn poppy (Papaver rhoeas) is dark blue to greyBees will use poppies as a pollen source.


Also, I won Hannah's photography contest!

I have not visited here real recently I guess, as I never saw the silhouettes below either. I love that one with someones (whose?) hair sticking straight up! How did you get that one? :)
I am so happy for you to have your camera and that you're able to enjoy it so much. What a wonderful time of the year it is too for picture taking!
Sweet dreams my friend~
