Oooo..lovely. I like how it is furled up. Will it soon open up to expose the petals?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Alan - lovely isn't it! Yes - it will open up - looking daisy like but with thin, pristine white petals

Great capture of clarity in this sunflower bud which allows us to imagine how beautiful it will be as a bloom!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Steven! A Fleabane will open up to look a bit like a daisy - but with many, many, very think pristine white petals.

this is the first sunflower of this colour that i ever saw, Elizabeth. and i like the saying.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The Sunflower is a very, very diverse family. Daisies are in this family - and this will open up to look much like a tiny, many thin petaled daisy

a strange flower in my view with its closed shape.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: This is before it opens up - into a tiny, many thin petaled daisy like flower.
I like the focus and the amazing details.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Ruthie! A lovely subject!
Seen like this, it looks almost alien.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It does - but it will open up to be a lovely, tiny, daisy like flower!
What a nice flower, I've definitely not seen one like that before.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It will open up to a delicate, tiny, many thin petaled, daisy like flower!
it looks like it is about to bust open Elizabeth... good DOF....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It does, Peter! Thank you!
This is rather splendid E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Bill!
About to burst into bloom
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is, Tom!
I got to see the open one too. I love the cute little bud.
