This is my first in Canada, so I made up this selective color shot.

The wearing of a poppy on Remembrance Day is in reference to the poem by Canadian field surgeon John McCrae who, after the second battle of Ypres (1915) where he'd lost his closest friend and comrade, he wrote "In Flanders Fields."  It begins:

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
