Hello everyone,we like to grow sunflowers in our garden, and we also like to feed the birds with sunflower seeds.This flower grew from a sunflower seed that germinated from some of the bird food!The flower turned out to be one of the largest flowers of all the sunflowers in the garden!
They are so bright and cheering, making one feel as if the sun is really shining.
Hope that it cheers your day, thank you for looking.

Bonjour Jean,

A sun full of energy, if I could keep it for all year !
I love the modulation of colors from bright yellow until tender green in the heart.
Excellent macro and definition of details.

A very sharp and detailed macro with very vibrant colors. The bright lighting brings out the fine textures of the petals and the hearft of the flower.
Very Nice


I am a "macro freaque". Nice macro. I like realistic colors. Whats the diameter of the yellow and green center?

Nice job,

Hi Jean...
Beautiful macro shot...
Great focus, texture, light...

Hi Jean,

Lovely shot. I like the off centre composition and the detail is excellent. The square format and border set the image off well.


Hi Jean,
Sunflowers are one of my favourites. I like the powerful colours and great textures. Good sharpness and colour accuracy. Gives a great summer feeling.
