Not the best pic, a bit out of focus, horrible light, etc. But trying to find the ID of this flower.

I found it two years ago close to Copacabana, Bolivia, during late autumn. It seems to be a daisy flower but the center was complete blue with some orange/yellow spots.

Any idea?

Hi Brenda,
interesting and nice flower. Good point of view. Nice composition.
Thanks for sharing,

Bonjour Brenda,
It seems that this is a specimen of Ostospermum Asti White
Usually go by the much easier names of either Cape Daisy, Blue-eyed Daisy or African Daisy. Usually seed grown Cape Daisies result in a variety of colors, but 'Asti White' is the first variety successfully selected for just white flowers. The petals are a true icy white with a blue/purple center ring around the eye...
Thanks for sharing
