Droopy Daisies

Beauty is in the Eye

Daily Photo

My Camera broke.  For Mother’s Day and Birthday combined my husband bought me a Nikon D60.  Here is my favorite from the first batch of pictures I took.  I’m in love.

I don’t know the name of these.  I call them Drooping Daisies but I made it up.  Anyone know the name?



  • I love how you blurred the green in the background. Beautiful pic Kym.

  • My camera did it. I just pointed and clicked. Amazing, I feel like a redheaded witch with a stubby, high tech wand.

  • Beautiful shot!

  • Happy Birthday, Miss.

  • Very nice picture.
    I may have to upgrade to a newer digital camera. The closeups I take seldom turn out . Or, perhaps I should read the manual that came with my camera. I tend to open the box – point and click.
    You have inspired me.

  • Happy birthday. Oh boy, you will love that D40. Can’t wait to see more photos.

  • I have a D-50 myself. I love the thing. Nikon rocks. Autofocus rules. And I love this picture.

  • I don’t know what the flower is named, but I have been wondering myself about taking images of flowers as they decay (we have some tulips that have begun to whither, etc.), which I thought would be interesting, but I wasn’t certain until I saw this picture.

    Congrats on the new camera, but sorry the old one died.

  • I’m loving the camera.

    Fork, I’ve been experimenting with aging flowers. Not to long ago I did one called bronzing the lilly that I like. But this flower always looks like this. Weird, huh?

  • Are those marguerites? I’m not sure how to spell them it but you get the idea! Great pic, by the way. You’re going to get a lot of great usage out of that camera!

  • Sandi, I looked up marguerites. The pics I found looked like white shasta daisies. So I’m guessing not but I’m open.

  • They can be yellow at times but I’m certainly not sold on that being the for sure variety. Very pretty, though. I’m partial to yellow.

  • The flowers are kind of homely-oddly twisted. Yet, when caught with the sunlight dappling over the top in the dark of the forest, they can be beautiful.

  • Very very nice photo.

  • I don’t know the name, but I do love the photo. I just saw a commercial for the D60 on TV ..

  • Whoo hooo – 10 mega pixels and SLR – Now you will need a 300mm lens – Christmas sounds good – and an external flash – sometimes the end of the lens can get in the way of the onboard flash and blacken the bottom of the pic. That sounds good for next birthday 🙂

    Congratulations, you will find a whole new world through your new view finder.

  • Thanks guys. I’ve been out playing this morning and cant wait to see what I have.

  • Hmmmmm, a Nikon D60, sweet camera! Your flower shots are gorgeous, and your pictures have always been great – no matter what camera you’re using. Thanks for sharing, keep on clickin’. Cheers, steve
