The red flower is a Zinnia. Can you post pics of the 2nd one showing the entire plant including the foliage?

you are right about the red zinnia. I don't have the foliage or the whole plant of the white flower one. that is the suck thing about macro photography.

thanks for your help.

I can put a point on the zinnia ID, but no idea about the white without seeing more.

It's Zinnia tenuifolia, sometimes called Red Spider Zinnia.
