On one of our many beautiful, beautiful hikes on the wonderful island of Madeira the eye of this gorgeous flower caught my eye. I love the combination of the aggressive roughness of the flower to be and the sheer beauty of the blooming poppy.

Stunning! Unusual angle makes it look like an eye!
I know, the resemblance is uncanny isn’t it?Thanks for your lovely comment Helen.
The colour is fabulous, and a great contrast with the background. Great shot!
Thank you DesImages, for once I didn’t touch the colour, it’s straight out of the camera.
Even more amazing!
it looks like an eye – very interesting shot – vibrant colours too
Thank you Linda. I actually dug it up out of the archives as a reference shot for my next painting, but I like the photo by itself to much not to post it.
will look forward to seeing it as a painting!
It will be, of course, adapted to my “trademark” flower style, but when it will happen, I don’t know. So much to do, so little time. :(
Great shot Peter !!!
Great photo, will look forward to the painting it will become.
I just knew you would. ;^)Thanks Patricia.
Cool what? ;^)Cheers Deb.

An honour to hear you use that word Alf, thank you very much.
