Treasure flower- orange gazania-macro photos

This is my new orange Gazania flower or also called, treasure flower.
I've bought it together with the monkey flower last week.
I like to take photos in sunlight but I have only afternoon sun.
The gazania closes its petals very early, in the afternoon and opens them next day, when the sun comes out.
So, I had very little time to take these photos with shinny water drops, before the flowers go to sleep.

I didn't know gazanias were also called treasure flowers! They have become one of my favorites lately because they are so photogenic! Love your pictures as usual.

The gazania is a beautiful flower but I wish it didn't close up so early in the day. I especially love the water droplets on them. WoW!
