It looks like it might be a bachelor button. Nice shot.

I have no idea about plants (my wife and FIL are the "botanists") I think it is a good shit, I like the DOF and that you can see the pollen on it still.

Yay! thanks you guys - now I know. My kids love it when we're out walking and I can say Oh thats a California poppy or thats a Purple Cone Flower etc.
Thanks g-man, I'm surprised it came out as nice as it did.
