Maximilian Sunflowers Bending in the Breeze 6910

When I was taking pictures on October 1 at the intersection of Greenlawn Blvd. and Interstate 35 in Round Rock just north of the border with Austin, I not only photographed a gulf fritillary butterfly on Maximilian sunflowers, Helianthus maximiliani, but the plants in their own right. Here I caught a cross-section of a stand of those normally erect sunflowers at the leftmost position to which a gust of wind blew them.
