What kind of yellow wild flower is this?
I took this photo of a beautiful yellow wild flower a couple of years ago and still have not found out what it is. Does anyone know what kind of flower it is?
Go to Google.com, click on images at the top right, and then click on the little camera icon in the search bar. This allows you to upload an image, and Google will search for similar images. This is effectively an image search and you can use it for identifying, not just flowers.
P.S. I haven't found a match on Google image search, but posted the image on Twitter. Some of my followers are likely to know what it is!
Here's a near miss from http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/

Its probably some member of the senecio genus, but the rolled up petals make it look unusual. It could be Shrubby Butterweed?
Very close to the Yellow and Shrubby Butterweed.
Sally your choice I was teeter-tottering with and I agree it may be the Yellow Butter weed.
I think it would be easier if we knew where the photograph was taken and had a description of the leaves and the height of the plant.
Yes it is a good idea to find out what region and state this flower picture was taken from. Then we can try and locate the flower choice of that state. Good ideas Sally.
Here is a link to yellow flowers. I am no expert on flowers, but it maybe a Hall's Mule Ear. Just speculation. Take a look at the link below:
Very similar to the Hall's Mule Ear. Thought it might be in either the Helenium or Rudbeckia family but nope. Photo was taken at Perrot State Park by Trempeauleau, Wisconsin, along the Mississippi.
I think the Butterweed looks more likely as the Mule Ear has more petals.
Its related to someone and I hope to narrow it down someday. There are some flowers that are similar but the ends of the petals are unique on these particular flowers.
Try to include a familiar object when you may want to identify something. That gives a sense of the size involved (a coin, a pen, a battery, your hand or shoe, etc.)
Perhaps you took this flower's photo just for its beauty, never thinking that one day you might want to know what flower it is.
But that is my suggestion on this one and future shots.

If you were flower what kind of flower would you be?If you were a flower what kind would you be? Judge yourself by your personality. Are you grumpy??? do you have thorns, etc. Would you attract butterflies or flies?
