16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
3-D Sunflower

The sunflowers are a prevalent focus in the spring in our butterfly/bee/hummingbird garden. They boast of their color, height, and texture before their bedmates have begun to bloom. Morning is the perfect opportunity to observe the bees and butterflies enjoying the sunflower's offerings. This particular sunflower takes center stage, exhibiting perfect shape and texture while basking in the sun.
