At least, I think they are a wild sunflower species.  I had just a moment or two to capture them when the sun went behind a passing cloud. The light was still bright, but this look more is pleasing to my eye than full sun.

  1. You’re probably aware that botanists use the initialism DYC, for darned yellow composite, as an acknowledgement of how many species of yellow daisies exist and how hard it can be to tell some of them apart.

  2. I’m quite taken with those long, slender stems. The softer colors are pleasing, too, as are those tidy little bracts. It’s a delightful photo of flowers that feel unfamiliar to me, but may not be.
