Little bit

Little bit

It's a little flower but I like it a lot. Taken at Longwood Gardens last month. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a pic of the nameplate. Does anyone know the name of this little gem?

UPDATE: Thank you to Olivia. This is a Spooned Osteospermum.

It is osteospermum whirly - gig.

Lovely flower. I don't think I've ever seen one. Don't you love how someone can always identify things for us? Gotta love the internet.

Like always, an amazing photo. My daughter and I are currently concentrating on macro photos as we want to participate in a photo competition with a macro theme. Tell me, what is the the depth of field you used and what is the distance between you and the flower?

Dear PhotoBoost,
I have no idea what it was set to. I didn't take notes that day. I'm so sorry.

You could have used forgetting the nameplate as an excuse to go back to the garden...

The colors are beautiful.
