Looking up to a Maximilian sunflower

with 29 comments

On September 20th I went back to Blunn Creek Preserve, the scene of yesterday’s earlier photograph of snow-on-the-prairie, and found some Maximilian sunflowers, Helianthus maximiliani, doing their thing. Here’s a flower head of one of them.

If you’re interested in photography as a craft, points 1, 3, and 24 in About My Techniques pertain to this image.
