i always run into these things and never know what they are. anyone a clue?
hmmm.....some sort of chrysanthemum, maybe? I'm not much of a flower person, I'm afraid.
Pretty shot, though! :thumbup:
how big is it?
That would have been my guess as well.
But the size of the leaves are strange. Maybe some type of clover?
i shot it from about 15 feet. my best guess would be about 6 - 8 inches in diameter.
Sweet shot Jon.... i would say a variety of chrysanthemum too
my guess is that it is a flower. I bet I'm right!
i have just exhausted all of my flower knowledge for you Jon., hope it helps!
I asked the wife, and Dahlia was her reply.
Nice shot Jon! and I'm not really a flower person.
i think i'm going to have to agree with raymond on this one...definately a flower...and a yellow one at that
Dahlia is my immediate thought (concurring with Gravespinner's wife) ... but I would need to go to Google Pictures, give in "Dahlia" and see what photos they come up with.
....which I now did, so I can edit my post just a bit and say there is a site by www.dahlia.org (The American Dahlia Society) and among many others, there also is this photo on that site

...which suggests that your flower may, indeed, be a Dahlia.
BRILLIANT! Thats about as much as I know too.
