Macro Flowers Saturday #11-Red Gerbera for Whitsunday

Welcome to Macro Flowers Saturday!

This Sunday, May 23, is Pentecost, also known as Whitsunday.
Pentecost is a time for many Catholics and other Christians to celebrate the Holy Spirit and the birthday of the Christian Church. Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter.
A time of renewal and hope, Pentecost is lavish with flowers and greenery.
In western Christianity, bright red signifies the Holy Spirit while Eastern Orthodox churches associate the color white with the Holy Spirit, so I'll post today daisies of both colors.
Daisies are a classic symbol of innocence, purity and beauty.
Gerbera daisies hold an added meaning of cheerfulness.

Incredible Maia, the beauty of these daisies are easy to over looked, but in macro, it's hard to miss.
