In the first four of the above photos, I panned across the field of sunflowers, from left to right. Next is a telephoto shot. The final two shots are close-ups of the same flowers in F. Burton Smith Park, near the St. Johns River. All photos were taken in late afternoon sun.

The St Johns River marshlands near SR 520 are suddenly ablaze with bright yellow southeastern sunflowers (Helianthus agrestis). Last week there were none. This week, a spectacular show like molten gold is spread across the eastern edge of the marsh.
