First sunflower~ Macro Monday and Today's Flowers 012411

My first sunflower of this season opened up a couple of days ago and I ran out this afternoon to take some photos of it. And, look who was already busy at work? Can you see the bee inside it? I'm so happy because these sunflowers, which I planted on my west fence, have taken a real beating from a windstorm a few weeks ago. In fact, I lost two of them...:-(... But, the rest have survived, including this one, which actually got twisted in the wind and now isn't straight up, but it curves! Well, at least it survived! Macro Monday and Today's Flowers for January 24, 2011. To visit Lisa at Macro Monday, please go to: http://lisaschaos.com/

You are lucky to have flowers in bloom. As I write this the temperature here in Pickering Ontario is -20 Celsius or -4 Fahrenheit. You have nice photos on your blog. Keep on clicking.
