From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Helianthus L. genus comprises 67 species and several subspecies in the Asteraceae family, all of which are native to North America, with some species (particularly Helianthus annuus (sunflower) and Helianthus tuberosus (Jerusalem artichoke) cultivated in Europe and other parts of the world as food crops and ornamental plants.
Could not identify the species.
Grow on a knoll of soil as a sound reduction near highway.
Let the nature do is thing and you will see nice thing.


Le genre Helianthus (les hélianthes) regroupe diverses plantes de la famille des Astéracées (ou Composées) à grands capitules jaunes souvent comparés à des soleils, d'où leur nom scientifique (grec helios = soleil et anthos = fleur). Elles sont originaires d'Amérique du nord ou tropicale, et certaines espèces sont naturalisées en France. Les deux plus connues sont le tournesol (Helianthus annuus) et le topinambour (Helianthus tuberosus).
On distingue, au sein du disque floral, des fleurons ligulés (la corolle forme une langue, la ligule) en périphérie et des fleurons tubuleux au centre
Espece as trouver.

Laisser la nature agir et vous allez voir de belle chose.

Merci wiki.

Denis, I like the composition of this shot. You chose a good perspective on this flower, with the surrounding foliage and the sky adding a nice quality to the image. It looks like the camera metered correctly for the sky and not for the flower. I've posted a workshop to help bring out some of the flower details. I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for sharing this!

Hi Denis , seeing as this is my first comment to one of your photos , a big welcome to TrekNature , this is a fine image of a beautiful flower , I see that you already have received a workshop on it but I thought I would add my effort and suggestion for this image. thanks for sharing and I hope that you find my workshop posting to be helpful to you.

PS; my workshop gave me a hard time about the number of words I used so I will add here that the technique described in the workshop works best with a lower iso , because of the increase in brightness a high iso may yield extra sensor noise.
