Gloriosa Daisy (Rudbeckia) Bud

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 13 July 2009 in Plant & Nature.

Many thanks for the kind comments on my recent images. :-)

Taken a few weeks ago in my garden. I love these large, somewhat coarse Rudbeckias, especially as they are unfolding. Unfortunately, I don't know what type they are.

Natural light, macro lens, tripod.

It seems I can see the petals unfurling, like the fingers of a fist de-clenching. Great choice and great execution.

You have captured fall with the texture and color of the leaves. I've just come in for a quick break after digging up my dahlia tubers, and your photos are a treat. We have similar plants, but you have such an eye for composition and light.
