Bladk-eyed Susan
Rudbeckia

The famed American Native wildflower that graces roadsides, meadows, gardens and everywhere else. It has been imortalized in many poems, a Tiffany Lampshade, , quilts and more. As it is the state flower of Maryland the flowers are honored at Baltimore's Preakness Stakes with the "Run for the Black-eyed Susans."

Gloriious to see them all at this time of year when most other flowers have finished blooming!

Not what we would call a a Black Eyed Susan here in the UK but that aside it is an attractive and well composed image.

A very informative pre-narrative followed by a rather beautiful photograph depicting this rather gorgeous Susan, so full of natural colour, detail, and warming light.

The single bloom is well positioned in the frame and a lovely background, Jenn.

Lovely colours like that splash of blue, just gives it a lift showing off the flower well.

The background makes this image for me, it's like a stormy sky in miniature.
This reminds me of my watercolour years. I used to mask the area for a flower, then have fun splashing on wild colours for the background. They would look way over the top - but then paint on a simple flower against them and they would disappear into the distance.

Love these rampant little rascals.
Personally, I would remove the circle in the upper right, the rest of the background is wonderful.
