Macro photography studies of Leucanthemum vulgare in Austria. They are the namesake for the whole group of flowers known as “marguerites” in German but interestingly, they are called “Ox-eye daisies” (not marguerites) in English. Ah, language!
Either way, they belong to the Asteraceae family, a wildly successful group of flowers with over 23000 species in them. Each of them is a little bouquet on its own, because the flowers consists of both ray-flowers and disc-flowers. The German name “Wiesen-Wucherblume” translates to something like “meadow run-riot flower”, indicating that they have the quality of weeds to grow exuberantly.
