This flower reminds me of a droopy-eared beagle, hoping for a little treat. Somehow, it just has that look...

Mojo said...

Wow. that's almost 3 dimensional! Great DOF.

Will said...

Nice! Looks like someone started a game of "she loves me..." with the petals.

Happy WW!

Dreamer said...

Lovely! Looks a bit 3 dimensional!

I wonder if these are the kind of cone flowers with healing properties like Echnacia is made from.

I think this is becoming one of my favourite flowers. I want to get some planted this fall in my front garden.

Lovely flower. I like the muted colors. It definitely makes one think of the end of summer.

I agree about the 3D effect! A beautiful, solitary flower :)

Lovely. It's somehow comforting to see one of my fav flowers in bloom 1/2 around the world.

It's beautiful, Robin. And I love the blur in the background. :)

I love purple coneheads, and black eyed susans. They are all looking a little the worse for wear now, though.

Let's hate Mojo together. CSN tickets indeed. AND he's in love. I hate him! LOL.
