Vernonia cinerea (L.) Less. (Compositae)

Vernonia is a genus of about 1000 species of forbs and shrubs in the family Asteraceae. Some species are sometimes known as ironweeds. Some species are edible and of economic value. They are known for having intense purple flowers. The genus is named for English botanist William Vernon. There are numerous distinct subgenera and subsections in this genus. This has led some botanists to divide this large genus into smaller groups which separate the species into distinct genera.

Hi there,
Lovely capture portraying the flowers in various states of unfold. I like the off-centre composition a lot. I'd be tempted to vignette the edges of the image slightly to focus the eye even more on the flowers.
