Thanks for commenting, Michelle. I was reluctantly experimenting with a little-used wide angle lens because my favorite zoom was in for repairs, but I am so glad I used the wide angle that morning. Was pleased with the results.

Many thanks, Irene, Stephen, Cheryl, John, Merna, Donna and Renee, for your congratulations. I'm delighted by your responses and thank you so much! If you're ever in Montgomery County in mid July you must look up the McKee-Beshers Agricultural Preserve and check out these sunflower fields for yourselves. They make a wonderful photo-op!
