With the help of Pl@ntNet and some googling it appears to be some sort of Scaevola sp. I have zero expertise in this though so take that with a big grain of salt.

Many thanks for the pointer to Pl@ntNet - looks like a very useful resource.

Scaevola sp. looked promising - its entry on Wikipedia: fan flower and/or half flower.

Google "fan flower" gives image results that look like the pic I posted.

Thank you so much!

tiger swallowtail butterfly on swamp hibiscus:

Lucky with shot below - I was focusing on the swamp hibiscus when the butterfly flew into frame...

ID request.  This was in a garden in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, on May 27, except that the flower picture is from June 1.  So far I haven't gotten an answer at iNaturalist or Dave's Garden or from the software at Pl@ntNet, which amounts to three strikes.  Does anyone here know?

Don't know if you have a Flickr account but you could try this group;

                https://www.flickr.com/groups/idplease/pool/with/51298221996/

If you don't have an account you could start one for free & then just post to the group.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Tried that link and got returned:

FlickrIDpleaseGroup.thumb.jpg.ed33f4aec91834141c98e16b3cc7109d.jpg

So tried to find the group IDplease - no luck - used google for "join Flickr group IDplease" and got some very interesting results - there are two ID please groups.  (No intention to fuel any feuds):

ID Please - the original group | Flickr

https://www.flickr.com/groups/id-please/

then there is the other:

ID Please discussion topics - Flickr

https://www.flickr.com/groups/id_please/

The first link for the "Original" is confusing, because it appears to show only 2 members - unless one reads carefully about joining the group....

Thanks for the resource, I intend to join too.

Thank you.

Sorry, not sure what the problem is. I just clicked on the link & it took me right to it.

Not your problem - it's because that is a "private" group, and you are probably a group member, so have access to it, and its posts/photos.

Whereas, although I am on Flickr, I am not yet a member of that (private) group so cannot get access yet.

A couple of recent ones from the Panhandle of Florida. I do not know any of the ids.

1.--The easy answer:  aster.  I would have to key it out, or ask somebody.

2.  Nymphae sp. (Water lily).    

3.  Cyrilla racemiflora (Swamp Titi).

The botanists say "DYC" for "damn yellow composite".  I've heard even harsher words.  There's no hope to identify most daisy-like flowers unless you get more shots--whole plant, leaves, and often a side view of the flowerhead showing the phyllaries, leaf-like structures around the base.  Seeds can be helpful too.  For experts, not for me.

Couldn't edit fast enough.  That'll teach me to put all my flowers in one basket.

Bog orchid, Platanthera sp. (maybe aquilonis)

Elephant's Head (a lousewort), Pedicularis groenlandica

American Bistort, Bistorta bistortoides

Orange Sneezeweed, Helenium hoopesii

Parrot's Beak (another lousewort), Pedicularis racemosa

Landscaping idea, California Corn Lily or False Hellebore, Veratrum californicum, and Blue Spruce, Picea pungens

Potentilla, Dasiphora fruticosa (two shots).  The slope isn't quite as steep as it looks, but close.'

Minuartia obtusiloba (white) and Tetraneuris acaulis var. caespitosa (yellow). Thanks to the good folks on the NM plants list for ID.
