ScooterBob and Colorado Sunflowers

Around this time of year, there's usually a field or two somewhat nearby to me with a nice display of sunflowers to use as background for pictures.

This year, the field nearest to me that I could find was near the I-70 Superslab exit to the town of Bennett.

Fiona, ScooterBob and I got there mid-Sunday morning yesterday and the field was looking rather good even though the sunflowers were kind of droopy.  Whether from the increasing heat of the day or just the size/weight of the sunflowers; I don't know, but they still looked pretty good.






I'm thinking the sun was just too bright this day, I had better luck in catching a different sunflower field back in August of 2010 during a sunrise.

How's SB's hay fever these days?

It's like the sunflowers are looking curiously at the little fella. And sunflowers are still my favourite flowers.

I do like how a sunflower field serves as a colorful background, thanks for commenting SonjaM
