That's one way of capturing seeds!
Unusual to see the red colour complete with webs.
Nicely isolated.

A super capture of this stunning (and never seen before by me) sunflower, and as I said yesterday you have the Metering Mode spot on Wink perhaps ever better with this subject matter ... Carol Grin

The texture and colour in the petals is excellent, Annette, and some nice shadows there too.

I suppose it's not the "sunny" version of the sunflower, but I have seen this variety in a garden locally and think the depth of the colour is stunning.

This is special Annette, a gorgeously composed and crafted piece, sumptuous rich and rather tasty colour, glorious pin sharp detail, superbly processed and presented, indeed a floral masterpiece.

Super colour Annette which I find very difficult to capture. Nicely done - and it seems we will be seeing them in future from your own garden! SmileSmile
