Hello Gerard,

Hope you are doing fine. This is a brilliant image of this wonderful Prairie Sunflower. The light and background are adding to the beauty of this shot though some might say the light is a bit harsh but i do not think so. TFS, take care,

warm regards/Abid

Hello Gerard,
Color, color and more color as well as excellent detail is how I would describe this shot. The Prairie sunflower is truly a beautiful flower as is evident in this eyecatching photo. I see you even managed to capture a tiny bee which is busy pollinating.
What I find amazing is the detail you managed to capture in the bright yellow petals. I seem to have a really hard time with vivid yellow objects, as the detail many time gets blown out in the exposure. Great shot!!

Hello Gerard
Wonderful image of this flower with great sharpness and colour.
Best wishes,
