Every year I cannot resist taking pictures of poppy fields. Poppy seeds are used as a traditional filling for Czech cakes.

Yes, I well remember that you once showed us some pictures of those cakes with the poppy seeds - and I also remember that you said that if you ate more than four of them you couldn't drive a car because of the amount of opiates in them! Was it Easter time that you have these cakes? If so, I won't drive a car or try to cross the road in the Czech Republic at that time of year! Hee, hee.
This is a beautiful photograph, the white and dark red petals of the poppies standing out beautifully against a fine summer sky. The light and colours are gorgeous, the simple composition is very appealing and the details and sharpness are exquisite.
P.S. I hope that you and your family are all well.

No soy fanático de las flores, pero me gusta esta composición con ese cielo como telón de fondo.

This pictures makes us feel like an insect in the grass. The flowers looks so big ! Good idea and a composition full of poetry.

Hello, your photo is so lovely and how lucky that you chose a low vantage point looking up at the flowers. They are lined up so perfectly. Excellent sharpness and good dof

Who could ever resist the lovely poppies?
Very pleasing composition, taken from a very low POV that makes the poppies seem bigger than they really are. Now in our parts white poppies are such a rarity that it is very pleasing to see them here.
have a great sunday

Very attractively captured shot with good use of DOF and impressive low point view depicting the blooms which stand out so well in the sea of green. A stunning composition and as always a simple idea making a great image. Excellent capture, Tfs

Very nice shot, these popies seem like some we have here. I like the light, the focus and the diagonal formed by the flowers.

I love this. The pale colour of the poppy flowers is super. Taken from a great viewpoint with an interesting sky as a BG.
Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

I use poppy seeds, too. I usually put them in my bread.
This is a delightful shot.
I just love how you have filled the f/g with these attractive plants, showing the three different stages of development.
They show up so well against the soft blue of the sky.
My warm regards,
