Secret Lives of Sunflowers

Posted on August 31, 2009


The rest of us admire the fields of sunflowers flowing over the drumlins, but Babs gets up close and personal.  This week she wrote:

Sunflowers! We have acres and acres of sunflowers near here. I went down and took many pictures, but all I got were acres and acres of sunflowers, I even did a panorama that would stretch to about 5 feet if printed, but they were all a little boring so I’m sending this one. Maybe not so boring, at least to me.


I am fascinated by this. Why is it that baby animals all look awwwww-fully cute, but baby sunflowers look . . . scary? Maybe it’s just me. Or maybe it’s Babs. Or maybe . . . it’s the sunflowers.

Every week photographer Babs Young captures moments in northern Michigan, and every week she sends one to Torch Lake Views just for you. You can find more of her photos at the Babs Young Photo Archives.
