[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cornflower is an annual plant of arable fields, often on sandy, acidic soils. Flowers are self-incompatible and are borne between May and August. The seeds, which are believed to remain viable for several years, generally germinate during the following spring with a second flush in late summer. This species was often found in association with corn marigold (Chrysanthemum segetum), which also germinates in spring.
Cornflower once occurred throughout the UK and was a troublesome weed of arable land. Between 1930 and 1960 it was recorded from 264 ten km squares, but by 1985 it had declined to fewer than 50 ten km squares. Today, self-sustaining populations are thought to be confined to only one site in Suffolk, one on the Isle of Wight and one in Lincolnshire. Isolated plants still occur over a large area of the south and east of England and in Wales, although many are due to introductions from wildflower seed mixtures and most persist for no longer than a year. Large numbers sometimes occur when there are deep excavations for roads and pipelines. In Europe as a whole, cornflower is not threatened and is still widely distributed, although it has declined in much of north-west Europe.

So you have cornflower blue eyes Joanna? I love this colour blue. Good composition with the flower on the angle against a good BG. Wonderful sharp details. Well done.

Blue like my favourite flower, too ;-)
This is a beauty, Joanna, great colours and POV and possibly the best DOF you can get with your camera ;-))

Ależ intensywny ten niebieski. Po prostu piekny.

This is very nice Joanna, really! I like the level of contrast and saturation I see..And ya know, blue is my favorite color! 10 pts!!!

Pretty flower and details in this composition, Joanna.
I had these in my garden for a few years, however, their color was a faded version of this beauty you have given us. Well captured,
thank you for sharing it with us.

Now that is a very nice flower. I like Cornflowers too. I'll look out for them when I next go to the Isle of Wight. Very nice composition and good colours. Well done.

Beautiful blue, are your eyes really that colour :)
Perfect composition I think and the contrast with the green background emphasises the colour fabulously.
There is an old (English?) saying, that blue and green should never be seen, without a colour in between. I think this shot proves that saying wrong.

Funny and good title!
This flower is magnificent, the composition is excellent with a perfect angle. Beautiful details and well saturated colours.

Titre amusant et bien trouvé!
Cette fleur est magnifique, la composition est excellente avec un angle parfait. Beaux détails et couleurs bien saturées.
