Yellow Gerbera
Gerbera L., is a genus of ornamental plants from the sunflower family (Asteraceae). It was named in honor of the German naturalist Traugott Gerber, a friend of Carolus Linnaeus.

It has approximately 30 species in the wild, extending to South America, Africa, Madagascar, and tropical Asia. The first scientific description of a Gerbera was made by J.D. Hooker in Curtis Botanical Magazine in 1889 when he described Gerbera jamesonii, a South African species also known as Transvaal daisy or Barberton Daisy.

Yellow gerberas floating in waterWikimedia Commons has media related to:
GerberaGerbera species bear a large capitulum with striking, 2-lipped ray florets in yellow, orange, white, pink or red colors. The capitulum, which has the appearance of a single flower, is actually composed of hundreds of individual flowers. The morphology of the flowers varies depending on their position in the capitulum.

Gerbera is very popular and widely used as a decorative garden plant or as cut flowers. The domesticated cultivars are mostly a result of a cross between Gerbera jamesonii and another South African species Gerbera viridifolia. The cross is known as Gerbera hybrida. Thousands of cultivars exist. They vary greatly in shape and size. Colors include white, yellow, orange, red, and pink. The center of the flower is sometimes black. Often the same flower can have petals of several different colors.

The colours here are superb - somehow you've managed to identify a strong contrast between the warm colours of the flower, and the cool colours of the background.
It even looks as if the light itself is different between the two?
Beautiful sharpness, depth of field.
Excellent work!

Sweet composition & warm colors.

The image is a bit soft or out of focus. Nevertheless quite pleasing to the eye. Have a great day!

Hello Sea,
wonderful colours and capture, nice shot even is a bit out of focus.
And just one thing, I think this is not a Gerbera but Gazania :-)
Have a nice day!

Très belle macro
