Purple Coneflower

Today, a simple post with a single image … a beautiful Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) wildflower, blooming in one of my wildflower gardens:

The purple coneflower is one of my favorite wildflowers, so bold in it’s colors and a great attractor of pollinators. I plan on adding some purple coneflowers to my newest butterfly garden that I am building.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D body
  • Canon EF 500mm, f/4 telephoto lens + Canon 1.4X TC, totaling 700 mm used (was using this rig for capturing wary dragonflies)
  • Bogen 3221 tripod + Wimberley gimbal head (Series 1)
  • ISO 500
  • Aperture f/5.6
  • Shutter 1/160 sec.
