Rudbeckia in the Hand

rudbeckia being held with fingers
I had some shots of my rudbeckia (black eyed susans) even closer up, but I found this one in particular to be a charming composition. The black eyed susans grow all over my front yard. I encourage them (by not picking the little seedlings when the full grown plant self seeds).

There is nothing sweeter and prettier that a black eyed susan blooming in a field or yard. They are one of my favorite flowers. This macro shot is superb. The detail you captured and the vibrant coloration make for a wonderful shot. Nice work. Genie
