Sunflowers

Though it was cloudy this morning, I went to sketch at Soos Creek Botanical Garden. It’s one of my favorite places. I might go back tomorrow just to sketch flowers. Despite this being the first day of Autumn, there were so many blooming.

These sunflowers were so tall, up to at least 12 feet!

After it started to sprinkle, I put the sketchbook away and just wandered the garden with my phone camera. It does a surprisingly good job and I’ve discovered portrait mode does good closeups with a blurred background… similar to a low f. stop on a DSLR (f 1.5 or so).

Lots of photos here. Among the flower images, there is a bee, a beetle, and a spider. Just so ya know.
