Is what made me stop and photograph these bright orange poppies.

Taken with my P&S, handheld and anyone trying to photograph these can tell you how much they move in the wind. I still think the P&S makes really bad decisions but the setting s do not seem to affect what it wants to do. If I set it on sports, I expect a high shutter speed, if set on scenic I would expect a narrow aperture but that is not the case. But the fact that the little tiny plastic lens resolved these flowers that well is impressive. I guess there is a lot to be said for Leica, even if its a teeny tiny plastic lens.

Wonderful colours for sure :highfive: and excellent sharpness.

I've said this quite a few times already but under the right conditions, it's nearly impossible to tell a quality P&S image from a quality DSLR image....the problem is that the right conditions don't always happen.....but they did here!

Wonderful image. I like the differnt stages of the flowers, and their pollen ... the little smudegs on on blossom, and the crisp neatness of the other. Well spotted, beautifully taken, great job!:1st:

Thanks all! They were on the edge of the sidewalk, nodding their heads for attention.
