    Tim, I can't identify the plant with such a closeup shot, but the macro images are lovely. Post a wider picture showing the entire plant and I bet someone here will know what it is without a problem.

    I like the colors and saturation as well as the exquisite detail in the first two. The second two do not work well for me. Too tight leaving me looking for more info.

    got the id.. went web searching and came up with this .. its

    Bachelor's Button
     
  7. Nice shots, Tim!
    But the ID is not absolutely correct.
    Bachelor's button is the common name for Centaurea cyanea,
    your pic, however, shows Centaurea montana or a cultivated version thereof, also called Mountain Cornflower or Mountain Bluet.
    It is a very popular garden flower in Europe, too.

    Cheers
