Sunflower hearts . . .



I posted about this phenomenon in July and it still amazes me! This wildflower was a volunteer ~ probably planted by a bird. When I processed the picture I was very surprised to see that the dark center is completely comprised of small hearts. The second photo is cropped to show them up close. No Photoshop tricks were applied; this is Mother Nature at her finest.

I used my small point and shoot camera and honestly did not even see the hearts until I uploaded the images! I was amazed too.
