Is this by chance Raspberry Truffle?

Either way it is wonderful. I love the color and composition of this photo. It is so cheerful. I will be revisiting this photo over the winter when I need a pick me up.

Thank you!

Jennifer, you know your coneflowers; yes, it is Raspberry Truffle with daylily Apricot Sparkles in the background. Thanks to you and Sue for your nice comments! I find certain plants hard to photograph, and both of these fall into that category so I was very happy with the way this shot turned out.
Good idea to look at pretty garden photos over the winter -- and ATP is certainly the best place to do that!

Of course these are beautiful flowers. But I would like to comment on the photo.
This is a great photo! Subject placement being left center shows good profile and background really snaps up photo.
Great job.

Chuck, thank you for your kind words. I am a gardening enthusiast first and only started taking photographs to support that hobby. But once in awhile I get a nice shot like this.
