Last Sunflower of Summer

By taggart  
Last Sunflower of Summer

.........with some silly text....

Why the sunflowers were all bent over and broken?
I watched....

It was the birds-- the little American Goldfinches who liked the ripening seeds so much they would perch upon the flowers and enjoy lunch...

Silly birds---
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.

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.
