Helianthus annuus hybrid

Helianthus annuus hybrid

Just the photograph today, folks. This is a hybrid annual sunflower from last autumn in UBC Botanical Garden's Food Garden, photographed at eye level (so the plant was "only" 2m (6 ft.) in height).


Wow! It looks like eclipse of the sun.

I will pay attention to any photo withoust words or words without photo. Always a treasure!

Hmmm. Eye-level for some. I'd be looking up that flower's nostrils. Lovely nostrils, though!

Eyelevel or otherwise, this is a beautifully photographed Sunflower.

Fabulous photo! It looks like a Colorado sunset on the prairie! Have a great day everyone. Life is good!
