These beauties are in my backyard. They are called Echinacea or the common name is Coneflower. All I know is they are one tough plant. They come back each year and require very little maintenance. My kind of plant. They are drought-tolerant as well. A very big plus in my neck of the woods. I used my macro lens for these shots. I love that lens. I like how it blurs the background and keeps the subject in focus.
