Young Helianthus

I chose this helianthus sunflower species for today’s One Picture a Day because of the way the center seems to recede into the petals. It has a photoshopped cutout look to my eye, despite that not being the case. The fibionaci pattern is evident as well in that center. The colorful rays have recently emerged but nit fully unfurled. The fertile center disc flowers have not opened yet, except for one. Other than that, it’s just a nice taste of a summer day. The camera was the Nikon D90; the lens, the Micro-Nikkor 60mm AF-S.
