Sunflower (The Sequel)



At this time of year we spend a lot of time seeing beauty in things that are dying. So I thought as a finale to my sunflower photos I would try to illustrate this with some photos of my sunflower as it is now. 

Looking at  the photos I thought there is something very mathematical about the arrangement of the seeds. Quick search and I found this site which explains all about the fibonacci numbers on a sunflower.

I probably should gather in the sunflower seeds, but I thought I would leave them for the birds and squirrels that visit my garden.

  4. Thank you for sharing the changes in your sunflower as it progressed through the seasons. There's definitely still beauty in that bloom, and the squirrels and birds will appreciate the seeds over the winter. Maybe you can get a picture of one enjoying a snack!
    Here are my Saturday Snapshots.

  5. You photos show the pattern of the seeds really clearly - and I've always found their connection with Fibonacci numbers is fascinating. Apparently you can find examples of the same sequencing all over the natural world. My Snapshot is at http://chriscross53.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/poppis-at-tower.html
