Interesting that the flower developed petals where they do not belong. I've also seen this happen with our black-eyed susans.

Very nice compostitions with good lighting and detail.

Nice shots on this mums series, Lori. The double bloom is very interesting.

Thanks. I thought it was very interesting too. I actually needed to do a double take.

Thanks Tom. I hope to make them into greeting cards or art pieces I think.

Wow, Lori, you are quite the accomplished photographer! You're skills are unrivaled and this picture is no exception. Magnanimous work. How's that? A little too obvious?

Plant growers are always on the look out for plants with genetic changes like this. Double decker cone flowers are very popular.

A little too thick I'd say.

Cool...this was an $3.99 mum that my mom purchased at Aldi's. This was the only blossom like this on the entire plant. I loved the way the window light illuminated it and the way the colors popped.
