[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my favorite wildflower of all time, the purple coneflower. I took this very near the same spot as the brown eyed susan I posted yesterday and they were beautiful together. I noticed the dust in the head of the flower only after I got it in Photoshop. I'm not sure if it is pollen or if it was blown there by the hurricane a couple of days ago.

Nice looking flower. Good composition and good colors. You mentioned the Hurricane; what a tragedy! Were you far away or ...?

Take care!

Hi Alli, these echanacea flowers are always so beautiful. I love the colours and their special coneheads. The light looks good on it and the colours are quite vibrant. Good angle composition, thank you.
I must go and buy some to plant this summer...
