The Pollen Trail - June 2013

The Pollen Trail – June 2013

Poppies are my favourite flower; I absolutely love them. The ones in the garden at the moment are the really big, showy kind – or they were until the wind blew them to pieces. The stamen is huge and bulky and sprinkled with purple pollen (which looks great with the red). When I took this picture, the pollen was also dusted between the petals, which, when I brought my eye level with the flower, I could see formed a kind of tunnel as they curved in towards the middle. I thought this looked pretty mysterious and magical. I like flower pictures where you can’t see the whole flower – where you can’t immediately tell what kind it is, or even that it is a flower. These poppies really are huge, so I thought they would work well for this kind of picture. There are so many potential points of focus, but this ‘pollen trail’ really caught my eye.
