Sunflower.... and a Bug?

First time to join Today's Flowers, and for my first entry, I am sharing a picture of one of the flowers that gives joy to me whenever I see it, the sunflower.

Today's Flowers


Like most of the flower pictures I have shared in this blog, this one was taken off the weekend market in Lung Center of the Philippines. I saw this flower towards the end of the flowers section, and at first I didn't know how to take a picture of the whole sunflower, but thanks to this little green bug in the middle of the flower, I was able to take a rather good shot of the flower. It might not be the whole flower, but I think I was still able to get the essence of the sunflower.

I love taking macro pictures of different flowers, and this early I want to apologize if I will be posting photos of nameless flowers. The thing is, although I love flowers, most of them I really don't know the names! So if I post several nameless flowers, please do help me in naming them. Thanks for dropping by my site!

Nice capture of the sunflower with the cute little bug. I don't know the names of many flowers either but when you think how many kinds there are how could we possibly know them all. Let's just enjoy!!

Your photo is lovely! The bug looks so small against the large flower center. Well done.

I don't know many names either; but I know this is a beautiful maco of the flower. You framed it just right with that little bug.
Well done!

Welcome, Jenn! Great photo and a clever way to capture such a big flower, with a little bug, no less. Will look forward to more of your work.
Happy Monday!

Sunflowers are among my very favourite flowers! I have only ONE growing in my gardens this year, seeded by a bird. I forgot to plant them last spring. OOPS!
