Today's Flowers: Ox-eye Daisy

Many of the wild flowers that I commonly see around my area are actually not native to North America. The ox-eye daisy is a good example of this.This perennial was originally brought from Europe back in the 1800s but is now commonly found through out most of North America, at locations like the Minnesota Valley NWR where I took this pic.
