    These pictures were taking up U. P. Michigan at Mackinac Island, I really would like to know the name of the yellow flowers, but if anyone knows all of them I would love to know them too
    Thanks!

    Tall ones look like cosmos.
    D'you have any more photos that show close-up detail?

    I thought you could click on photo to enlarge, I'm new here so I'm not sure. But no I don't have any other photo! Thanks!

    The photo does enlarge when you click it, but it's still not enough. A close-up shot would help. The tall flowers in back are certainly cosmos, the purple in the middle might be Erysimum. My guess on the yellow is Potentilla.

    Might be a Tagetes, such as T. tenuifolia.

    The yellow could be Draba aizoides. A close-up would help to better identify it.
