Sunflowers/Asters

I created this album to showcase photos of Sunflowers or Asters, those flowers that are in the family Asteraceae. These easy to recognize and popular flowers are actually composed of many small flowers, or florets. Each flower head has many central petal-less florets that form the disc in the center. Ray florets, each with one petal, form the outside of the flower head.

Please feel free to add photos of wild sunflowers or asters that you have taken :)
