Although I have home-bred some zinnias that very much resemble some Gaillardias (for example, the Razzle Dazzle strain of Gaillardias) this photo is most probably a Gaillardia, and not a zinnia. One possibility is the "Fanfare" Gaillardia.

The bloom in the photo's center structure is un-zinnia-like, as are the leaves.

I thought it was just me going crazy! I was so sure that was a Blanket Flower. Glad to see this stunning picture in the right place. @jmorth is a great contributor to the site!
