Getting There!

The sunflowers are starting to make a show.
Mostly, the field looks like this. Just a few sunflowers here and there starting to pop open.


I love the sunflowers when they are at this stage. The bugs haven't started to eat the petals yet, and they look lovely.


The beetles seem to be starting in on this one already.


You can see how tall they are in this picture. (That's my hubby...the farmer.)

Sunflowers still make a pretty neat model, even when they aren't open yet.

Next weekend should be the best to take pictures. This week more of the flowers will slowly pop open. Just a note to any budding photographers (pun intended), the lighting is best early in the morning and late in the evening. Mid-day sun will wash them out and lots of photoshopping will ensue. Just take my word for it!
