Default Sunflowers

We grew some giant sunflowers for my son from a pack of seeds this year and they just began to bloom a few days ago. Here are a few I took just about an hour ago.

Nice, Mike. I really like the 2nd one. I noticed that the ones on my way to work just started blooming this week, too. I think he must sell the seeds or something because every year he plants tons of them all packed tight on his little plot of land.

Mike - very bright & colorful, full of the cheering mood of the subject! All three are great, with wonderful details on the bee, but I too like the 3rd shot the best for composition and clarity. Let us know when the seeds ripen and the birds start coming to "steal" them.
