A crowning achievement

Infused with pink and purple pastels, this colorful macro echinacea (purple coneflower) photograph features an early blossom with young petals that have the look of a crown for some kind of floral coronation.

This photograph with its smooth bokeh and colorful pastels brings a smile to my face. Standing sentry this solemn yet proud purple coneflower is ready to live out its reign having just donned its tender floral crown. It is here I only wish all rulers would radiate such modesty and grace under the seductive weight of power and responsibility. It ain’t easy being king—even if you’re just a flower.
