Ox-eye Daisies

Today’s post features the abundant Ox-eye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare), which seems to be growing everywhere right now … especially along roadways and highways. After a morning at Snowball Hill Prairie, I decided to find a place where I could safely park my truck and capture some images. Here are my favorites:

The toughest part of trying to photograph these beauties falls somewhere between finding a safe place to park to get to them, and stopping the action of these lightweight flowers as they sway back and forth! The Ox-eye Daisy is a native of Eurasia, but is very common in our parts.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D Mark 2 body
  • Canon 180mm, f/3.5 macro lens
  • Bogen 3221 tripod with ballhead
  • ISO 400
  • Aperture f/3.5
  • Shutter 1/4000 sec. to 1/8000 sec.
