Garden Beauty...

I am not sure what this flower is, but it was radiating in the sunlight.

I believe this is a gaillardia or Indian Blanket, as we call them.

Beautiful flower and photo. :)

So gorgeous! Love those vivid colors!

I think it is gaillardia also! and it does look like it's on fire - simply gorgeousness!
Nadege, you asked me about my bee shot - it was luck! I had set up my tri-pod (which always always makes for a better photo) to take a photo of the centre of my hollyhock. I was very close 0.3m using my 18-55mm lens, f10, 1/400s. Suddenly, a bee landed and stared to roll around in the centre - I was thrilled and started snapping away - happy accidents!
