Wild Daisy

I shot this wild daisy at Lower Nike Park in Warrington, PA.  I love this shot because of it's such a simple, yet beautiful shot.  I'm really pleased with the bokeh considering this is an f4 lens.  I guess that's what bright, mid-day sunlight will yield :-)

The park is called Nike Park because this site used to house Nike missiles during the cold war.  You can figure out where one of the silos was located because there's a very large, level, circular area on the grounds and it stands out. 

Here's a pdf of an article about the missile site from 1955.

Lovely daisy and peaceful bokeh (that one grass disturbs me a bit but who cares)!

The photo is great, even the petals are perfect. I have tried photographing daisies, and seldom find a perfect one. The bokeh makes the flower stand out,
