This is a wild flower which grows in the Badlands. It is known as the ten petal mantzelia, and the blossoms are closed during the day. Blossoms open up in the evening. The stem and leaves have little hairs which are prickly. I've picked the blossoms and stuck them on my shirt, sort of an instant corsage.
Applied the saturated slide film effect filter and the fractalius filter in PSE7.
