Neat Profile on a Sunflower

Posting a few days in advance. Heading out to Fountain Hills, AZ for the art festival there.

Great pollen on a September sunflower. Color of the yellow seems a little wonky to me, but I’m admittedly a little colorblind. The sunflowers are volunteering all over the place. Some getting culled, some getting left. They tend to wander well. And they self-hybridize, too. So it’s interesting to see the new blossoms. Especially when they keep some of that recessive red.
