Ox-Eye Daisies

Today’s post features some prairie wildflowers from my trip Tuesday to Linden’s Prairie in southern Missouri. Ox-Eye daisies always catch my eye whenever I run across them on the prairie. At Linden’s Prairie, there were multiple, nice masses of these little beauties. Here are a few of my favorite ones:

This next image is another “focus-stacked” image, made by stacking 7 individual images to get a greater depth of field image, and without sacrificing the blurry background. In this instance, a “mild” gust of wind came up midway through the 7 captures, as can be seen by the obvious movement near the center of this image, as well as around several of the flower petals. Wind … one of the most harshest enemies of macro photography!
