Yellow Daisy Flower And Bee
Photograph - Outdoor Color Photo
Upbeat, charming color photograph of a single yellow flower with pinkish striations against a floral background. Beautiful fall colors with bokeh, but no sky or people. ONE OF MY SOLD IMAGES AND AVAILABLE TO YOU AGAIN.
In addition to the single beautiful yellow blossom, the same flower in various stages of growth can be seen, from bud to dried flower. The main blossom has a bee hard at work in the process of pollination. Photographed at Stanley Park, Vancouver, B.C., Canada in September 2015.
This yellow blossom appears to be a variegated species in the aster, daisy, composite, or sunflower family, an exceedingly large and widespread family of flowering plants called Angiospermae.
The Asteraceae are an economically important family, providing products such as cooking oils, lettuce, sunflower seeds, artichokes, sweetening agents, coffee substitutes and herbal teas. Several genera are of horticultural importance, including pot marigold, Calendula officinalis, Echinacea (cone flowers), various daisies, fleabane, chrysanthemums, dahlias, zinnias, and heleniums.
Asteraceae are important in herbal medicine, too, including Grindelia, yarrow, and many others. A number of species are considered invasive, including, most notably in North America, dandelion, which was originally introduced by European settlers, who used the young leaves as a salad green.
