This floral triptych is made up of three captures of a single coneflower taken on one day but at different times to illustrate the effect of different lighting on a single subject: early morning, midday, and late afternoon. The Echinacea is a member of the daisy family; there are nine species in the genus that have the common name of coneflower, derived from the fact that the petals, which surround a spiky center, turn down in a cone shape once fully opened. This perennial plant tolerates dry climates well. It grows wild but is also popular in gardens because it blossoms all summer. This triptych is also available in color in my Flower gallery.
