A pretty unglamoress name for such a handsome flower. You've caught nature's handiwork gloriously, Anita.

"Sneezeweed" ? . . what a happy name ! It looks very powerful and purposeful, hafta say.

Interesting flower Anita. I never sow this one. Is it in a full bloom or is it already fading away? I ask because of the pale colour of petals and also because of the shape of the petals. I like the contrast between colours of petals and nice green background. I think that it would look beautifully also with higher aperture and whole "ball" sharp. Very good image anyway.

Have never heard of 'sneezeweed'. Love the color and the spherical center.

wow! Interesting bloom.

Very interesting flower. Nice capture. With my allergies, virtually any plant could be called "sneezeweed".

I've been identifying and cataloging my wildflower photos and when I saw this I thought sneezeweed but the orange threw me as did the big head... I was gladdened to find out I was right when I scrolled to the caption. It's a beauty.

@Earnest: Thanks, Earnest. I think it is a wonderful idea to catalogue your wildflower photos. You have so many and are so good at identification.
Fabulous Capture Anita!!
