Poppy season has been and gone. A fleeting burst of scarlet that lines the roads of central Portugal. Every year I say to myself – “I must stop and take some pictures!”
Either I have no camera (see ‘Photography for Dummies’ page 1 for advice on that.) or I’m ‘in a bit of a rush’. No time apparently just to stop for a few minutes and engage in the wonder of nature and try and capture that beautiful splash of amazing colour and form with the technological miracle that is the digital camera.
So it was definitely time to stop and smell the roses. Metaphorically speaking.
This one isn’t a poppy. But it does have a nice bug on it…
