4 more pictures in notes above! (the second picture has two other versions to see if visit)

This Pick of the Day came as a sort of "smack in the face"! I was actually planning to choose one of the pictures I took today of some little yellow Hawkweed blossoms. However, as I was walking back into the house, I saw the Zinnias I have growing out on the porch and I thought, "It would be nice to get some petal close-ups of the yellow Zinnias! I took a several pictures, but I just couldn't resist getting some images of the hot pink Zinnia too, even though I already have some nice petal close ups! When I started working on my images, I looked at this one with the plan to crop it down to just the area with the crisp petal edges. I did some work on some other images, came back to this file, and just before I dove in to crop it, I looked at the whole image and said out loud, "WOW!!! CHECK OUT THAT BOKEH!! I cropped the image to include the beautiful background and put the crisp petal edges on a third. Just think...if I hadn't stopped to look at the entire image, I would have missed this, which is much better in all regards I think.

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (October 11, 1884 — November 7, 1962) was the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, holding the post from 1933 to 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt's four terms in office. President Harry S. Truman later called her the "First Lady of the World" in tribute to her human rights achievements. Wikipedia: Eleanor Roosevelt
