  1. That’s a splendid haiku for this photo! And a great photo for SkyWatch. Mine is sunflowers too (though mine are set against a stormy sky instead of the beautiful deep azure color of yours!), and I noticed another one besides ours just taking a quick glance at the thumbnails. ‘Tis the season for sunflowers! 🙂

  2. Love this one! Sunflower school makes me smile. Against the big blue sky … Smiling!!!!

  3. I love how bright and cheerful sunflowers are! Great skywatch photo 😀
