Is this a poppy or a butterfly? When I uploaded it into Lightroom, it seemed to me that the paper delicacy of the petals and their shape were just like a butterfly fluttering down to settle on a plant.
This is the only one of this series that I cropped – it was taken in landscape but I felt it looked better portrait. Apart from that, it’s as is came from the camera. Taken this morning, 22 May 2009 in a field just below our house, looking into the sun.
