It must be great to see these flowers completely wild. Here they've got so popular in gardens I can't even remember seeing one wild!
I like the POV and composition which leaves some space on the left for the slightly angled flower to "look into" :-)
Very sharp and very detailed.
Great light and natural colours.
Superb BG-blurring DOF.
Well done Bob!

What a way to brighten my day! Great image Bob, Extremely sharp and detailed. Perfect lighting and exposure.
This is one of Rosie's favorite flowers, they just make you want to smile for some reason. We used to have sunflower border on our walls, sun flower light switches, sunflower flour and sugar containers etc... Nice work Bob!!

A lovely verse, and the note further takes us through some good details.The shot inself is excellent.
In India, Sunflower is cultivated as a cash crop, for oil(of the cooking variety)!

Hello Bob. It is nice to be seeing this beauty in the wild. You have captured the fragile yellow petals in good detail and the sharpness of the stamens are commendable. Sorry that I did not come as often as I should to your collection because I was tied up lately. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

Very pretty sunflower Bob. 1 to 10 feet tall - that's a safe number!! Pretty flower and they must be very hardy too.

Sunflowers are great and its great to see one growing in the wild in full flower in the middle of May!
Their seeds are not only nutricious to us but provide a great attraction at bird feeders and the flowers look so splendid. So it's great to see this image, Bob especially as the flower itself is so attractive.
But I have never seen it in the wild, as a garden escape yes, but not growing in its natural habitat, so this is a joy to see and TFS!
