Four-nerve daisy portraits 3 and 4

with 29 comments

Here are the final two portraits in this series of four four-nerve daisies, Tetraneuris linearifolia, that I made at the West Pickle Campus of the University of Texas in north Austin on March 18. For the picture above I aimed horizontally toward a deeply shaded area. For the one below I aimed with a wide aperture toward plants far enough away to leave no details, with the result that the daisy’s green stalk is even less noticeable than the stalk in the darker portrait, and the second flower head almost seems to float disembodiedly in green space.
