Brown Eyed Susan Visitor

A flower with mostly yellow petals radiating out from a brown cone centre has an orange, black and white striped bee on its centre. The petals look as if the brown centre has leaked onto the yellow, staining them brown for a little up towards the tip.

Have a great day, friends! This brings me memories of my Flower A Day project, combining two of my favourite subjects – wildflowers and insects, particularly pollinators. This beautiful splash of yellow petals, stained with rich brown attracted me as much as the bee feeding on it. These flowers appeared one year in a field, never to reappear, so I was so glad to have captured a special time.
