Neven / Pot marigold (Calendula officinalis)

An image of a beautiful flower called "Calendula officinalis" or pot marigold, an orange flower with soft orange petals and long thin hairy leaves. Nice two shades of orange, one exposed on the sun, and the other in my own shadow while I was trying to take a picture, and there is a bud in the background as well with some grass and other green flower leaves, and some dirt for background contrast.
Doesn't have much of a smell, but looks really nice.
It's a plant that originally came from southern Europe, with different names: pot marigold, ruddles, common marigold, garden marigold, English marigold, or Scottish marigold (source: Wikipedia).
