    cool, we don't have anything but the 2nd (mexican sunflower).

    and after my picture (and I can see in yours), I've never noticed the inside of a sunflower. how nicely colored and detailed it is with all of the parts of the flower.

    when you see something, do you just pull off to the side of the road and take a few pictures? guess you must have your camera with you at all times!

    I try to always have my camera with me at all times. When I am driving I am always looking for something to shoot. Even when I don't have my camera I still look for things I would like to shoot and I will go back. Of course when the wife is in the car I don't always get to stop and take any pictures unless it is something I like or won't see again.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the advice, I should probably bring my camera along more. But yes, I'm always looking for interesting things, bright colors, and cool shots.

    I think it is a sunflower. I thought it was the same flower only it was starting to die.
    Thanks
