Artist's Description

There’s a beautiful sunflower field that blooms every September just down the road from my house in southwest Ohio. I’ve always wanted to get some great shots of it, but usually I forget until it’s too late. This year I was determined that I wasn’t going to miss it. So one morning I loaded up my gear and headed down there. A lot of other people were taking photographs too, many with small children amongst the flowers. I spent about an hour or so shooting all different angles of the flowers. Bees and butterflies were quite busy. I followed this particular butterfly all around the field. No matter how long I waited, it refused to fully open its wings so I gave in and captured a profile. :)
