About this Photo and my Experience

I photographed this Tickseed flower on the Hammock Trail located on the Playalinda Beach Road in Titusville, FL. I couldn’t find much to photograph in the area then discovered the bloom on the side of the trail. When I took the picture, I didn’t think it would be a keeper, but when I arrived home to view it on my computer, the outcome was astounding with very pleasant results. In fact, this was the only photo I captured that day. See, you never know what you’re going to get in photography.

Tickseed Flower Facts

The Tickseed flower is a wild flower that belongs to the sunflower family. It’s daisy-like bloom has a dark center and bright yellow petals that reach two inches in diameter. The stems mature up to three feet in height with divided, narrow leaves. This impressive plant grows best in moist, but well-drained sandy soil where it’s very sunny or lightly shaded. They flourish naturally in marshes, river banks, creeks, ditches, prairies, savannas, open rocky woods, and along roadsides throughout the United States.

The Tickseed Flower acquired its name because the seeds resemble ticks that reveal themselves in the blooming period from June to November. This is one of the flowers that attracts butterflies and deer actually avoid them, which makes it a great yard and garden plant.
