Silverpuffs (Urapappus lindleyi) are in the sunflower family and grow in open areas below 6,000 feet in much of the western United States. They bloom from March – June. I found these growing in my front yard and photographed them with a 60mm macro lens at ISO 100 for 1/800 second at f/4, which gave a nice shallow depth of field with enough speed to negate any motion from the breeze.
