    The background in this shot allows one to sense the size of the flower – a frequent conundrum when viewing macros. What are the cute little composites in the background?

    Lemon Silver, now that rolls off the tongue so nicely, that I shall remeber it.

    The cute little composite is Spanish daisy, Erigeron karvinskianus, which hails from Mexico and Central America (not Spain). The other visible plant is an Oxalis, either O. corniculata or the taller, greener, O. stricta, both pernicious weeds in the Alpine Garden, with explosive seed capsules and deep, fleshy roots.
