Hello everyone,in my post 'Let the sun shine...' I featured the sunflower that is now in the background.Its best flowering days are over, but now it has presented us with its baby!
Nowhere near as large but equally as pretty and colourful.
Hope that you like it, and the bonus was a very drowsy bee who didn't care for the cooler weather.

Thanks for looking.

What a lovely floral shot with a tiny visitor, dear Jean!

The colors are well handled which are not that easy in capturing yellow.
The sharpness and POV are well done, and DOF is kept well too.
Well suited title as well.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Jean,
A splendid capture of these sunflowers adorned with wonderful light and this flower seems to be emitting light!
A very sharp capture of this couple, the big one in its decaying process and the younger one prepared to enhance the field.
The bee is a bonus!
Very neat work.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Beautiful of those sunflowers and the bee. Love the bright yellow colors. Good dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Jean..nice shot...excellent focus and details..nice depth of field.


Bonjour Jean,

Durant mes vacances dans la région Midi-Pyrénées, j'ai pu en voir des champs et j'ai moi aussi penser cette chose, ils ont l'air humains ces braves tournesols se tournant de tous côtés pour recueillir les bienfaits de l'astre solaire!!!
Ces deux là, n'échappent pas à la règle, le plus grand me fait penser à une mère protégeant son petit!!!
Excellente image

Good morning Jean,

What splendor!
The buttons of the flowers are fantastic.
Contrast and color finesse.
Extra bonus with the insect reveling in the heart of the sunflower.
My compliments for the presentation. TFS.
Kind regards.
