Gerbera Daisy Close-up

Gerbera Daisy Close-up in Barcelona garden [enlarge]

This is what was left of a gerbera daisy or at least that's how I figure it is called. Some time ago I posted a similar picture and I was kindly given the right name. I think it was Heather who did it. Thanks again. If I am in a mistake today blame me! Of course my posts are not about taxonomy but beauty, my concept of beauty. Sometimes I am lucky to match yours and more than often I fail. That's the wonderful thing. The world would be very boring otherwise.

  1. I often post beautiful flowers and rely on others bloggers to name them.
    I can tell you it's an excellent macro. The colours are so rich and vibrant, but still so sharp. Very beautiful

  5. -Thanks Babooshka. We're lucky to have friends who know more about many things.
    -Hello Michele. I am no macro expert so I am happy that you like it.
    -Aloha Kuan, thanks for the nice words. Hmm yeah the flower looks like a big eye ;)
    -Oh Heather thanks for coming back. I was 99% sure but there was someone else helping me with flowers once and I didn't want to be categorical. I don't trust my memory anymore! You are a good teacher. I learned my lesson well. How many flower names do I have left? :)
