Sunflower bud ©

A Sunflower bud, a very small one, not much larger than a quarter. No detail was lost when original was printed up as an 8.5 x 11. I was in the process of documenting the opening of this bud. The next day, some squirrel gnawed this bud off the stem... but, here, she will always be about to open. I only planted two this year, this was the little beauty of the two. The squirrel decided the bud didn't really taste that well and discarded her pillage in the little Sunflower's pot :(
