What a lovely little sunflower and I love the way you displayed it. I have been finding some red ones here but this is the first one I have seen with a mixture of red and yellow petals.

Beautiful composition and bokeh!

Ann said...

Are other flowers the same color? I meant the yellow petals are not evenly distributed.
