Pink Flower with Small Yellow Crown

This is an interesting flower in that it has group of large pinkish-purple petals and in the middle a crown of smaller yellow petal flowers. It is called a Zinnia and seems to have originated in Mexico or the southwest United States.



This next picture shows the yellow flower crown almost gone. Notice the small spider on one of the upper top left petals.
