Purple coneflowers

This may not be the most detailed or realistic shot of purple coneflowers (echinacea), but I composed it for its abstract nature. Like the slideshows I featured earlier today, I like to photograph these native plants—and other flowers—in a recognizable but less realistic style, shortening the depth of field, blurring the background, putting the flowers in their setting. This is a portion of my pink and red garden which I’ll no doubt be featuring this week since it’s finally in full bloom; you’ve already seen the pink pasture roses.
