I grew these sunflowers thinking that I'd be able to photograph them some time. Some time is now, I guess. They are very pretty in full sun light. I tried various lenses, but my 100 mm macro with CP filter is really the best.

I love this set too. #3 & #4 are my favourites.

I have nominated # 3


PS. I especially like your dedication to the craft that you planned so far ahead to plant these just for a photo opportunity.:thumbup:
