Sunflower Season

It's the time of year when fields around here start turning yellow.  I'm always amazed at how many fields are planted with sunflowers.  It must be a lucrative crop! And I've learned something about sunflowers living here.  I used to think of sunflowers as these nimble flowers, bending on their stalks to face the sun.  Now I know that they face east to great the sunrise, so by the end of the day, they have their backs to the setting sun.  In past years I've photographed them in the morning.  Here they are backlit just before sunset.
