In the Garden at КАФЕ ПAЛЬMИPA (Cafe Palmira) - French Marigold (Tagetes patula)

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

I know little botany, so I have no idea what type of flower this is, but I like nature's colors with the rust colored petals edged in yellow.

Finally, had a few minutes to do a little research and discovered that the "French" marigold has migrated from its homeland in Mexico and Guatemala to Ukraine presumably by way of France.

Hallo Mark,
do not worry about the macro picture. you can start right now, grab a camera and shoot simple objects around the place you live. maybe flowers or insects or other small objects. Happy hunting macro objects.
salam, azizaH.
