Pink Echinacea on the grounds of the Zoo in Memphis, Tennessee.
This photo served for a time as the cover photo for the group, "The Flowers Of Flickr".
Apologies for being so behind but looking forward to a good catch up this evening :)
Thanks for all the lovely comments on yesterday's fuchsia shot :)
... from my collection of photos of these lovely flowers.
A thought for contemplation, a brief conversation that took place at the time I was taking this photo:
"Isn't it a lovely day?" I said to the man standing next to me.
"Yes" he said, "it's always a lovely day when you can see the grass under your feet"
(An old saying apparently but I like it).
Thanks to everyone for their comments, faves and awards. This rather pretty coneflower was screaming out to have its photo taken, albeit being slightly worse for wear.
Where to start photographing this massive bed of different coloured Coneflowers wasn't easy ... but these red ones really stood out.
This hi-impact image of a Coneflower captures the unique structure of this flower that is often missed as we go by them in our gardens.

White coneflowers, this strain is called Pow Wow.....blooms all summer and is heat resistant.....so they say.....
Explored 11th of August 2014. Thank you all for your kind comments, faves and group awards for this image!
When I visited Kingsbrae Gardens this fall, I took so many beautiful photos that I may enjoy them all winter...
we need only observe it in election times :-)

A flower doesn't think of competing with the flower next to it.
It just blooms.
... many other colours were also on offer to the photographer and sightseer. But it was the mid afternoon sunlight that these particular blossoms really shone.
(Echinacea purpurea white) I always compare this flower with a puppy with floppy ears.
Thank you very much for your kind comments and faves, I really appreciate them. Have a good day!
..this little guy landed on the blossom just as I was about to press the shutter.
A most unexpected surprise !
Echinacea purpurea (Eastern purple coneflower or Purple coneflower) is a species of flowering plant in the genus Echinacea. Its cone-shaped flowering heads are usually, but not always purple. It is native to eastern North America and present to some extent in the wild in much of the eastern, southeastern and midwest United States. It is also grown as an ornamental plant, and numerous cultivars have been developed for flower quality and plant form.
