Velvetleaf Mallow Flower 9791

In yesterday’s photograph from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on October 3rd you couldn’t make out the details of a velvetleaf mallow flower, Allowissadula holosericea, in the background behind an opening bud. Now you can. Don’t you like the shadows that all those stamens cast onto one petal?
