    What a fine drama to capture…a small fellow with heavy feet working hard. And what beautiful colour on the echinacea. The oranges look blood red dark in places and the yellow of the pollen almost glows.

    I love the first three for the flashed out background (great focus on the action), but the colours and patterns of the last two are simply delicious. The taste of success!

    Gorgeous! A beautiful series that tells a story.

    It just occurred to me that I’ve never seen Echinacea around here, neither in gardens nor when I’m buying seeds at local stores. I wonder if it’s because they don’t do well here or if the habit of growing them never caught up. I’ll try to find out, because I’d love to have them in my garden.

    Thank you! Right place at the right time. :)

    Nightjar, echinaceas are in the daisy family, and there are a number of different varieties. I don’t know why they wouldn’t grow where you are, especially one of the cultivars, which are bred to be ornamental garden flowers. We have a very large population of wild echinacea here, but a great deal of it grows in abundance near the border to South Dakota. The ornamental varieties are commonly sold here at nurseries. They’re low maintenance, so quite popular.
