Unexpected Visitor

It's so nice when something invites itself into your garden that you are actually pleased to see growing there!  
 In the back corner I discovered a sun flower that looks like it is going to have several blooms.
Look how perfect these buds are!  I love the little white hairs along each protective leaf, and the way they overlap one another around the bud.
 The flowers will be fun to see, but I have to say, I am liking it at this stage of its growth VERY much.


  1. Even without the bloom, they're already beautiful. OK, tell me you are not just using the point-and-shoot camera --- because if you are, I think I need you to give me some lessons on how to use mine!

  2. I am using a point and shoot, and I don't really like it because I want to be able to get closer still... You take GREAT pictures with yours, but if you want I can show you what I do... (which is just put it on macro and hold it really still).
