White-tipped Yellow Gazania (Treasure Flower)

Yellow Treasure Flower

On days like this, it is important to remember the beautiful things in life and the small treasures. One such thing that brings us joy is seeing the ornate intricacy of flowers just like this one, aptly called the Treasure Flower.

Also known as Gazania (Gazania linearis), the Treasure Flower produces blooms that look like sunflowers that grow to 10 inches high. Native to southern Africa, they are actually part of the daisy family, but can easily be mistaken as a sunflower. In Hawaii, these flowers have been naturalized and can be found as ground cover in shades of yellow, white, and even purple.

About Rob DeCamp

I am a professional photographer living on Maui, in the State of Hawaii. I made my living shooting weddings, but now have shifted my energy to nature photography. What started as a hobby, has now become my passion. I love to explore nature, and capture the ever changing colors and shapes that I find. No matter how many times I go back to the same place, it never is the same. The lighting, the weather all change to give me a different feeling. I think that is what inspires me to keep shooting!
