Purple coneflower close-up

Vacation is over, summer coming to an end, high time to get back to some posting here on blog. I was absent from the Web, both blog and social media, for last few weeks, but I was continuing working on my 365 project and photographing a lot. Including still beautifully blooming flowers and vegetables on my balcony garden. The purple coneflowers, like this one, are from Hummingbird and Butterfly mix, and their long stems dominate even my tomato plants. Positioning the flower against bright light and shooting through give petals this beautiful glow everybody enjoys. And creates a perfect image for Macro Monday submission.
