Two of my favorite things go together like honey and butter. Sunflowers are majestic. It's amazing how fast they grow from seed in the Spring. In July, in our backyard, we could almost watch them grow. They are now nearly ten feet tall. Each is topped by a single massive yellow flower. Some are in full bloom, others are about to blossom.
Sunflowers are a great place to find bees this time of year. The images below came from an outing at Howell Regional Park on Sauvie Island. The park is actually an old farmstead that still has working fields.
I applied some of my own 'painterly' photo processing that evolved from the creative application of Photoshop image processing software.
