beautiful and I agree it really does scream summer!
I like the lighting and the way it plays on the leaves and petals. And the lone bee adds an extra bit of interest.
I love this Ricky. The yelow against the blue is very effective and the detail on the seeds is very good, giving it great texture and a focal point.
Not 30 ft away from where Kellan was playing in the sprinkler was a row of mammoth sunflowers that my niece planted. The head of the flowers measure about 15 inches across - maybe a bit bigger. It screamed "Summer" too, so I submitted it.
