tall coreopsis, Coreopsis tripteris

It's fun to capture the names as well as the flowers. In this case it's tall. So looking up to it, with sky as background is my attempt to make it a tall coreopsis. Does it work? In my experience, these are the tallest coreopsis (often called tickseeds). They can be a couple meters tall, with flower heads a couple inches across. They grow in open, often damp areas in AL, AR, CT, DE, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD(E), MI, MO, MS, NC, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, WI, WV, ON, and QC. Monroe Co MI, 7/27/10.
