Thats great Lil, I can't believe that some critter has not tried to eat some part of that sunflower. Love the colors and the pose. I can hear the little one now, crying for a bite. Beautiful shot my friend.

That looks like a fancy wood carving one would find in expensive craft stores. Great shot, Lillian!

Great capture Lil, my Bluebirds stayed around for a few days after the young ones fledged, but I haven't seen them in about a week.

Bret, thank you very much. Any other year the deer have nipped any sunflower that has grown, literally in the bud.

Thank you Tony. This family stayed away for a while, but now they visit many times a day.

Absolutely beautiful Lil. Very appealing composition, great color and of course the Sunflower really makes this special. Excellent work.
