I didn’t take as many pictures over the long weekend at my parents’ house as I thought I might, I was just too tired. I did spend some time with my mother’s sunflowers, though, as they were in full bloom and attracting all sorts of cute bees. To my surprise, this was my favorite image of the bunch. Instead of the usual open-to-the-world sunflower face, the flower hearts are shrouded by the petals, coyly peeking out through their bangs. And I love the intensity of the colors.
