Showy Daisy

After today’s post, I’ll be without internet for a few days as I embark on a short photo project. In the meantime, I have scheduled new posts to publish every morning during my short absence. So be sure to check the new posts on my blog at this link: Show-Me Nature Photography blog

In two visits to Crystal Lake (Colorado), I found many wildflower species. One of the prevalent wildflowers was the Showy Daisy (Erigeron speciosus), at least this is what my Colorado wildflower ID book suggests. Regardless, it is quite a showy wildflower, with big, beautiful flowers and growing in nice clusters:
