    Sunflowers a such great subjects--you did a very nice job with this one. Love the offset and the way the flower seems to be playing peek-a-boo.

What a terrific find, Laurie. Love Sandi's description--it's winking at us. This may just be a winner, my dear. It's very unusual the way we get practically the entire bloom cycle in this one image. The details, clarity and color are super. And the diagonal composition is oh so pleasing. Yep, it's a winner.
