I've been told that these are wild meadow daisies. They were certainly taken in a rural setting.
I'm sure someone will correct me if they are not daisies.
I could have benefited from a slightly greater DoF I think. Some of the larger petals are beginning to lose it around their edge. I could tweak contrast, but that would spoil the centre.

Surely it's a lacecap hydrangea, Jack.
Lacecaps have a ring of flowers around the edge and sterile florets in the centre.
It was probably a white one that has gone golden with age, as they do.
You can see a variety of them here.
Your dark background sets it off beautifully.
It's hard to get the lacecap all in focus because the centre florets are recessed, i.e. not on the same focal plane as the outer ring of flowers. A smaller aperture will do it.

You've done it again Pamela. Grin Thank you for the link.
It is possible that some of the 'golden' may be down to my PP. It's an archive shot so I can't remember. Smile
Ignore Ben - he's being slightly less than honest. He's not turning golden at all. Wink
Mikbee say he wants to do some portraits of him, & Mick doesn't 'do' gold. GrinGrin

I've bookmarked the link Pamela - as I do with all info gleaned, from wherever.
Once more, many thanks. I shall browse the link more extensively tomorrow.
