Random Pictures
I didn't see any nodding, but I have to go with the name.  I previously posted a beggartick of some kind.  That one is very close to being the same species.  There may be varieties for this plant.
Common on the beaches of BBI right now.  It is a variant of the Frost or Awl Aster.  The tips of the phyllaries are awl like.  No hairs on the stems and leaves mostly.
I'm ready
Flowerheads 1/4 to 1/2". Leaves have hairs on midrib.  Stems hairy. The disk flowers are quite big and have five lobes that make them look like miniture 5-petaled flowers.  The ray flowers bend backwards in many cases and number only 9 to 15.  Calico Asters like to grow in clumps at times.
For comparison, in the lower right is a Large-leaved Aster.

Shot by an eagle flying at 1,000 feet
Pink sky September 15, 2011
Near Point Catosh on the shore.  It is big and beautiful, but I have read that it is a really bad invasive plant.
