AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Your daisy certainly glows most beautifully - it will not be overlooked, however small it may be.

This daisy fools my eye: I see the center disc first as domed out, then as flat and lower than the petal ends. Great shot!

It does indeed look like it's glowing. Beautiful.

Mine is up at The pagan's eye.

Have a great week.
