    hmmm.....some sort of chrysanthemum, maybe? I'm not much of a flower person, I'm afraid. ;)

    Pretty shot, though! :thumbup:

    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.

    thanks Terri

    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.
