Sunflowers... fascinating!

I am amazed by the way that sunflowers follow the sun.  I photographed them this summer - morning, noon and night - and I could see the progress that they made in a single day.  Relentless.  Constant.  Never distracted by wind or rain.   Turning their leaves, stems and flowers to follow the sun from the time that they were a small seedling to the time that they were full grown.  Only when they were withered and dry did they stop following the sun.

Yep - I think there is a message for me in the sunflowers.
