Plains Coreopsis/Calliopsis

Sometimes called Thickseed, this flower displays lush and intense yellow color over immense areas in the wild.  There are 35 species that cover North, Central and South America’s, 27 of the species are native to the northern continent.  I took this image at Lyndon B. Johnson State Park in Gillespie County, Texas where they could be seen everywhere along the roads in the Hill Country late spring 2007.
