From the Fence Row

Another unusual wildflower from the fence row. I have seen many similar looking flowers that do not have the pronounced outer ring of petals. So far I've only seen but one plant with these flowers. Actual flower diameter about a quarter size. Had to capture this one inside as it has been so stormy and windy lately. Exposure about 3 sec, f/32, 105 macro lens with north window light and a diffuser. Subtle but significant lighting changes depend on how the diffuser is positioned near the subject.  Those more common flowers I see bloom in the summer look like this:

The green bee or wasp rather unusual. This was a very memorable photo because I contracted the worst case of chiggers while taking it ever. Two weeks of terrible itching.
