Black-eyed Susans

By taggart  
Black-eyed Susans

A native/wildflower variety, these Susans grow in masses anywhere they are not mowed down. They can grow 4-5 feet high in a spread of brilliant yellow foretelling the end of summer!

Your image has the best depth of field I have seen in a long time..... it fades away naturally and is very pleasing to the viewer--- great shot and composition.
