Black Eyed Susan

I got this picture on my hike yesterday. It was a day when the yellow flowers really seemed to pop against the green backdrop. This is a Black Eyed Susan, Rudbeckia hirta, a member of the sunflower family. It can be found growing in full sun and is one of the most-common wildflowers in the United States.

It is the state flower of Maryland.

Thanks for reading,
