Last Sunflower of Summer
.........with some silly text....
Why the sunflowers were all bent over and broken?
It was the birds-- the little American Goldfinches who liked the ripening seeds so much they would perch upon the flowers and enjoy lunch...
They were not paying attention and Rascal, the 'wannabe flying' cat would pounce ...
The birds scattered and he went down with the flowers---
I don't think he caught any birds, and this propped up branch is all that is left of many tall sunflowers
This is a true story--
and it was rather amusing to watch----silly cat!
I might try this one in mono when we finish traveling.
Lovely detail and colour with very nice DOF.
Great clarity and DOF, Jenn. So beautiful! I think it would make a beautiful mono as well.
Beautiful angle to capture this lovely sunflower - lovely dark green b/g.
You've captured some nice detail in this beauty Jenn,
Even bent over after the onslaught, this sunflower still makes a fine summery subject, and your 800 is serving you well, Jenn, capturing excellent detail........all the wee hairs so well delineated.
Wonderful light and colours - lovely detailed image too, Jenn ......
A stunning image, Jenn - wonderful detail, composition and depth of field.
Fabulous shot Jenn, wonderful colours and detail, superb clarity too

The sharpness of the petals is so attractive to the eye.

I do like your composition Jennn makes a change from seeing it full face.
Love the story Jenn! Shame about the sunflowers tho. But this is rather special.
love the angle at which you have taken this Jenn and the detail is great
A lovely story to go with this lovely detailed image
So very beautiful Jennn
Beautifully photographed Jenn
Lovely image, great detail
Like fingers reaching out to the sun.
All that is left of our Sunflowers is the seeds for the Greenfinches.............they love pulling the seeds out and happily munching on the hearts.........
Gorgeous Jenn, love the "silly words" too
Pity you missed the mid air cat Jennn !!! Lovely detailed shot.
I can visualize the action in the poem Since you are traveling, I will wait and send the seeds when you return.
Lovely textures and colours. Enjoyed the tale too!
Wonderful story and a beautiful image Jenn.
Lovely story and image Jenn.
The last sunflower reaching after the final rays of the summer sun, Jennn.
As for your write-up - Nature doing what Nature does.
Bowed but not broken Jenn, love the cheerful colour and write up
Great shot and I love the story.
Great details Jenn and a great tale to go with the shot.
Fabulous close up !
This image is all what the word summer is about: sunshine, colour, happiness....
Great detail! I can see all the hairs on the stem of this flower
When you name a cat 'Rascal', you have to expect him to fulfil his destiny
Beautiful detail and sun, Jennnn
Beautiful bold color.
