237/366: The Magnificent Black-Eyed Susan

237/366: The Magnificent Black-Eyed Susan
What a magnificent flower to have in a garden. Easy to grow, these plants will reward you with dozens of stunning blossoms over 2-3 months! They are a fantastic photography subject from bud to after they have dried up! And because they are large, they make fine practice subjects for photographers of all levels. Being large with a shape that isn't hard to capture, they are forgiving for newer photographers. For those who are adept at macro photography, the macro details offered by this flower abound! Hairy sepals, leaves and stems, velvety-looking centers, and as this flower matures, the brown area you see erupts into tiny yellow florets! Black-eyed Susans are MAGNIFICENT!! :)

(I photographed this beauty in my raised-bed garden a few years ago, and had fun adding a texture to the background. :D)

A lovely capture, Janet! Black eyed Susan is the state flower of Maryland, and as such you frequenntly see them along the roadside :-)

This is a superb flower Janet - I hadn't realised that there were hairy green petals too - it's a flower I'm going to have a look for next year. Fantastic photo as usual x
