Sunflower Seed Head Remains 5279

Click for greater clarity.

The picture of Maximilian sunflowers in the last post was a look back at October, a time that’s always still warm (many of you would say hot) in central Texas. Even after sunflowers wither and fade, though, what’s left can be fascinating. Here you see the seed head remains of a “common” sunflower, Helianthus annuus, at the Arbor Walk Pond on December 4, 2013. It looks like there are still a few seeds in it.
