In think, one of the coolest thing about sunflowers, is the intricate pattern of the seeds as they develop. If you stare at the center of the flower for awhile, it can be mesmerizing. (Well, at least for me.)
This particular bloom was photographed at a farm field a short distance from our home in rural Kewaunee County, Wisconsin. I’ll have to post more images from this shoot in the near future.

This is a field of sunflowers in full bloom. Just imagine what a difficult jigsaw puzzle this image would make.
I titled this one “Packed House” because it reminds me of people in a crowded theater as seen from the stage.

A couple of bees were working on this Sunflower when an ant decided to enter the picture. This is a flower in my wife’s flower bed. Not a flower she planted. One that was added by the birds dropping seeds from the feeders.

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It’s what sunflowers do. – Helen Keller
The sunflowers are in bloom! In our area, we are blessed with several fields of sunflowers every summer – thanks to our good neighbors, the Kuehl Seed Farm.
When the field is on a main highway, it is quite common to see people pull over, jump out and snap a couple of pictures with a digital camera. And who can blame them. A field of sunflowers in full bloom is so bright and cheerful it’s natural to want to take it home with you. This field of flowers is on Highway 42, Just north of Kewaunee, WI. (While I was taking these photos at least four other cars stopped to do the same.)
