I love sunflowers. Whatever color or size they are, I love them. My favorite is the great, big monster sunflower. I went to a local garden center hoping to find one of the big sunflower plant (or even seeds) and everyone else must like them too because there wasn’t a giant sunflower plant or see to be found.
I did find a very pretty firecracker sunflower plant though so I picked up a couple and planted them in my garden. When they are through blooming, I will save the heads to use the seeds for next year.
While I was shooting the sunflowers, a butterfly landed on another plant nearby so I tried to photograph it. It was hiding behind one of the plants and I knew if I tried to move closer it would fly off. It flew off anyway so this was the best shot I got of it.
