Purple and Orange - Inspire Me Thursday

The current challenge at Inspire Me Thursday is purple and orange. No orange here, but this is one of my favorite botanical photos, mainly because of the purple edges on the leaves (a little hard to see at this resolution). I think coneflowers are at their best in this stage of their development - so many interesting textures!

I love this photo!! It has reminds me of a beautiful but dangerous temptress. I know that's an odd thing to say, particularly about a flower, but I think it's the deep purple and the sharp lines of the coneflower center. Anyways, it's gorgeous!!
