Closeups of the Cosmos

This gallery contains 2 photos. For those of you who were hoping that I had captured amazing photos of the night sky, keep hoping. The Cosmos is a popular, long-lasting summer annual flower that’s easily found in our local nurseries. This pink/purple Cosmos was photographed in August 17 at the Sixth Annual Raptor Festival held at the Terra Nova Rural Park in Richmond, BC.

White is another colour of Cosmos. The purity of such a hue is amazing, especially under the summer sun! Whatever the colour, Cosmos have no problem attracting bees and hummingbirds to their bowl-shaped flowers.
