Texas Sunflower with Sky Macro

Texas Sunflower with Sky Macro - We were driving through the Texas hill country near Fredricksburg when we spotted this small patch of sunflowers behind a strip mall. The were very pretty and of course we had to stop and take some photos of this wonderful flower. We capture this sunflower looking away because sunflowers follow the sun so it is pointing west but on this day we had a nice blue sky with clouds as a backdrop. Now they seem to be growing more like a wildflower, but I suspect at one time this area may have been part of a farm where crops were in the past, Farmers were know to sometimes plant sunflowers to give their field a rest. Sunflower plants are quite hardy and will come back year after year if they are allow the right conditions which is lot of sun, good soil and water. These sunflowers were very yellow something we had not seen of plant that we had photograph in the past. I don't know what type of sunflower they are since there are at least 70 different varieties it definately one of the taller type as many of these were over eight feet. Sunflower are great plants for bees, butterflies and birds. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography - Tod Grubbs / Cynthia Hestand.
