Still a few poppies around in the local park here, but fading fast.
A chippy and crow for good measure.
All taken handheld with the Canon 400 F5.6.

C&C welcome
Thanks for looking

First and last for me Martin. First is a pleasant floral, and the last is a standout crow picture.

Love that first poppy and the chippy. The fading flowers aren't pretty (you know what I mean...they are past their prime) , but are very well done photographically and work really well. The crow are excellent as well...a very under appreciated bird.

Nice Martin! First two for me, but the two aging poppy shots are quite interesting!

Nice set of fading poppies, Martin.
I like 2, 4 and the last two a lot.
Looks like autumn colors are fading further south too.

Very nice images, Martin. My favorites are the lovely first poppy and the terrific crow image. Very rare I would pick a crow, but the exposure, detail, perch and composition are top notch.

First, that Crow shot is spot on Martin, outstanding blacks buddy!

Poppies look wonderful, rich in color and nice in texture and a fine job with the 'double' shot and well done on the fading flowers.
