[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Opposite to my yesterday image, this WAS a Sunflower !
It was a beautiful, yellow Sunflower, probably like ONE OF THESE.
Now, its days are end. It's dry and burned. Colours are not beautiful, sharp and contrasted like times ago...
A little RED spider uses this flower remains as house. It protects the little insect from predators, water and sun.

It's a triumph for LIFE cycle !!

really interesting photo the lovely light and colours attracted me to it, and the sentiment it gave you.

Nice and interesting picture. The POV and the autumn transformed this beautiful sunflower into a dragon head.
Well done

Hi Silvio,
I hope I won't hurt you, but I find beauty in that dried flower, the beauty that appears from your picture : colours are not ugly, even if burnt, they decline themselves in a different way... (rust, brown, grey, silver; sand...
Thank you for that unusual picture of sunflowers.

Ciao Silvio, come vedi sono anche qui, originale l'idea di fotografare un fiore morto, bella foto e bei colori, grande nitidezza, Ciao Silvio

Hello Silvio, this is a very strange composition but I see the little red spider. Yes, life goes on. An endless cycle.

Well spotted.

Well taken! Have a great evening, Yan :)

Ps: many thx for your crit on "Kayaking on the Gatineau River at Sunset".
