Award Winner | Photo of the Day | March 16, 2012
I took this photo of Sunflower at Public Market at Seattle. Sunflower is recognized worldwide for its vibrant color, and beauty. The flower petals within the sunflower’s cluster are usually in a spiral pattern. Typically, there are 34 spirals in one direction and 55 in the other, and this pattern produces the most efficient packing of seeds within the flower head.
