Day's Eye! - Black Eyed Susan - Cone Flower NZ by 


Rudbeckia fulgida, commonly known as Black-eyed Susan, Brilliant Coneflower, Eastern Coneflower, Orange Coneflower or daisy type flower, is a perennial plant native to eastern North America.
Leaves are dark green, sparsely but roughly haired, simple, with sparsely serrate margins. Flowers are heads, with black disk florets and bright orange ray florets, borne singly on stems that extend above the foliage. In the garden, this plant spreads aggressively by both stoloniferous stems and seed.
The origin of the word Daisy is Anglo Saxon “daes eage” literally meaning “day’s eye”. It was called this because daisies open at dawn as the day is just beginning.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
