Sunflowers

(Toledo, OH) This is the time of year when the sunflowers begin to grace us with their splendor. The image of this particular sunflower was taken in shade, and the resultant picture is a somewhat muted flower head.

Still, I never cease to be amazed at the sunflower's ability to follow the sun throughout the day, a characteristic known as heliotropism.

And for you technophobes: I'll bet your fancy shower faucets can't execute a maneuver as cool as heliotropism.
