The sunflower

and the bee

Amazing on two counts, the sunflower and the bee. The sunflower was huge, just larger than an adult head, and I was amazed to see what looked like small flowers within the much larger flower. I never really looked this closely at these flowers before, practically another world. The bee, and its co-workers, must have seen the flower as a treasure trove. Initially the bees weren’t too happy with me taking pictures but they calmed down after a few moments. I guess they saw the value in the flower over the threat of the human and I saw the value in the picture over the possibility of a sting.
