Summer time in the prairie

Gray-headed coneflower, originally uploaded by andiwolfe.

Since I've not had time to be in the shop and have no new pics of work in progress, I'll continue posting some of my recent photos. This is Ratibida pinnata, or, Gray-headed coneflower. It's one of the dominant plants at most of the prairie remnants scattered throughout Ohio. This one was photographed at a restored prairie plot at Whetstone Park of Roses.

I love the bokeh and I specifically framed the flower to be surrounded by the yellow flowers in the background. I used f/5.6 and made sure the flower was well isolated from the background to bring out the soft bokeh that reminds me of a painting.
