These things are like nine feet tall! These sunflowers are growing in my mom's garden. For a couple of years now, they have been growing there, but the funny thing is, she never planted sunflower seeds.....

I like the sun shining though the petals. The lens flare, ghosting of the petals, bright sun along with the angle of the composition gives it a surreal feel for me that is interesting.
