This is actually a pretty small flower, though I do not know its name. A little rain and nice overcast skies made an excellent opportunity for a portrait. This is genuine macro, 1:1, or very close to it. Eight shots were combined in Helicon Focus to get adequate detail and depth of field at this magnification.
BTW: One of the coolest things about Flickr to me is the fact that there are so many people out there who are knowledgeable about things I am not. I'm informed that this is a coreopsis. Thanks, Annabelleny!
