Purple Daisy

I spotted this purple Cape Daisy flower in the gardens today while taking a stroll with the new 400D.

This is straight from the camera, only resized for flickr upload.

    Might well be a Cape Daisy. <searches>
    Yep, I'd say so
    Osteospermum Osteospermum, I think
    I used to have a garden full of these, years ago :) One of my favourites. So they suit the Brisbane climate then? Hmmm... ;)

    Thanks Maria - I took this during my first walk with the new camera. Given the overcast nature, I possibly should have upped the iso to 400 but wasn't aware of it at the time. Many of the other shots didn't come out (shutter too slow) to my liking.
